The Internet, July 1, 2011 – The Document Foundation announces the release of LibreOffice 3.4.1, the second version of the newer 3.4 family, targeting both private individuals and enterprises. LibreOffice 3.4.1 fixes several bugs that affected the previous version, and can be safely deployed for production needs by most users.
LibreOffice 3.4.1 can be downloaded from the following page: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/.
Large enterprises deploying LibreOffice on desktop PCs, are still recommended to deploy LibreOffice 3.3.3, which has been tested over several months by thousands of people worldwide, and are encouraged to call on professional support services. LibreOffice 3.4.2, available at the end of July, will target enterprise deployments.
Recognizing that large enterprises and conservative users have special needs, The Document Foundation has decided to provide two different versions of the software, so as to garner to the needs of power users looking for the latest enhancements while still catering to the priorities of more-prudent users who prefer stability over availability of new features.
Versions announced as stable can be safely deployed in work environments, as bugs might hamper individual features but won’t have an impact on the overall quality and security of document production.
