LibreOffice 3.3.2 is now available

The Document Foundation maintains its release schedule thanks to a growing and vibrant community of developers

The Internet, March 22, 2011 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 3.3.2, the second micro release of the free office suite for personal productivity, which further improves the stability of the software and sets the platform for the next release 3.4, due in mid May. The community of developers has been able to maintain the tight schedule thanks to the increase in the number of contributors, and to the fact that those that have started with easy hacks in September 2010 are now working at substantial features. In addition, they have almost completed the code cleaning process, getting rid of German comments and obsolete functionalities.

“I have started hacking LibreOffice code on September 28, 2010, just a few hours after the announcement of the project, and I found a very welcoming community, where senior developers went out of their way to help newbies like me to become productive. After a few hours I submitted a small patch removing 5 or 6 lines of dead code… enough to get my feet wet and learn the workflow”, says Norbert, a French developer living in the United States. “In a short time, I ended up removing the VOS library – deprecated for a decade – from LibreOffice, and finding and fixing various threading issues in the process”.

LibreOffice 3.3.2 is being released just one day after the closing of the first funding round launched by The Document Foundation to collect donations towards the 50,000 euro capital needed to establish a Stiftung in Germany. In five weeks, the community has donated twice as much, i.e. around 100,000 euro. All additional funds will be used for operating expenses such as infrastructure costs and registration of domain names and trademarks, as well as for community development expenses such as travel funding for TDF representatives speaking at conferences, booth fees for trade shows, and initial financing of merchandising items, DVDs and printed material.

Italo Vignoli, a founder and a steering committee member of The Document Foundation, will be keynoting at Flourish 2011 in Chicago on Sunday, April 3, at 10:30AM, about getting independent from OpenOffice and Oracle, starting The Document Foundation, raising the capital and the first community budget, organizing developers and other work, and outlining a roadmap for future releases and features.

The Document Foundation is at, while LibreOffice is at LibreOffice 3.3.2 is immediately available from the download page.

About The Document Foundation

The Document Foundation has the mission of facilitating the evolution of the LibreOffice Community into a new, open, independent, and meritocratic organization within the next few months. An independent foundation is a better reflection of the values of our contributors, users and supporters, and will enable a more effective, efficient and transparent community. TDF will protect past investments by building on the achievements of the first decade, will encourage wide participation within the community, and will co-ordinate activity across the community.

  35. As per Wes M’s comment #31 above, how do I update/upgrade from previous versions? For example from 3.3.1 to 3.3.2?

    Are we expected to download the whole package again and reinstall?

    I added the repository: “sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa”, but am a little unsure if this will be OK for my Ubuntu64 platform.

    “sudo apt-get upgrade libreoffice” does nothing:

    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information… Done
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

    Looking at the version number in writer I still have 3.3.1

    Or are the updates not available yet?

  38. It seems that the download links are all broken including all links coming from other sites promoting LibreOffice.

    I noted this just now after an hour of searching for this office to no avail. I do hope I could download this software rather than using MS word.
