The Internet, February 23, 2011 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 3.3.1, the first micro release of the free office suite for personal productivity, to improve the stability of the software and eliminate crashes affecting the Windows version. LibreOffice 3.3.1 also brings new colorful icons based on The Document Foundation branding guidelines, and includes updates to several language versions. More details can be found in the official press release.
Yes, these are emotional words, but we just have to say: You are our rockstars!
In just one week, thousands of donors from all over the world did the unbelievable: You all donated more than 40.000 € for setting up The Document Foundation as legal entity. Honestly, we never ever even dreamed of achieving that in such a short period of time – what happened is just amazing, awesome and beyond imagination. Thank you, thank you, thank you so very much! You all contributed to the dream of a Foundation, and with 10.000 € left until we have the required capital stock, we’re close to making it a reality.
You all rock, and you are among the heroes of this Community!
Perhaps the most exiciting thing about nearing our capital goal is the diversity of individual donors, each one making a small but significant blow for a stable future for LibreOffice. Without all of you, we could not be where we are now, and better we are not reliant on any single corporation or donor which is a great source of strength for our community.
Our race for funds runs until March 21st, and we hope for many more donations that not only help us in getting the required 50.000 € capital stock, but also a starting budget for the future Foundation. We’d like to share some thoughts on the next steps with you, as well as answering some of the most frequently asked questions on the race for funds and the creation of the Foundation. (more…)
