What's New:

  • Mac version doesn't bundle the mediawiki extension
  • The distribution for Windows is an international build, so you can choose the user interface language that you prefer. Help content is available via an online service, or alternatively as a separate install.
  • Our Windows binaries are digitally signed by The Document Foundation.
  • For Windows users that have OpenOffice.org installed, we advise uninstalling that beforehand, because it registers the same file type associations.
  • If you run Linux, the GCJ Java variant has known issues with LibreOffice, we advise to e.g. use OpenJDK instead.
  • Some menu entries have changed or added. If you miss something, that may be due to the use of customised menu settings from your previous LibreOffice installation.
  • This version still contains a few annoying bugs, as listed here.

New Features and Fixes

  • Round-trip interoperability with Microsoft OOXML, particularly for DOCX, as well as legacy RTF, has improved considerably. A new import filter for Abiword documents has been added.
  • A new engine for Calc - massive parallel calculations of formula cells using GPU via OpenCL are now possible thanks to our new formular interpreter.
  • Windows specific improvements for business users, particularly a simplified custom install dialog, and the ability to centrally manage and lock-down the configuration with Group Policy Objects via Active Directory.
  • Better integration with Windows 7 and 8, with thumbnails of open documents now grouped by application and a list of recent documents, both showing on the task bar.
  • Power and enterprise users on all platforms will like the new Expert Configuration window, which has been added to the Options tab.
  • New Start screen with a cleaner layout that makes better use of the available space - even on netbooks - and shows a preview of the last ODF documents.
