Berlin, December 5, 2012 – The Document Foundation (TDF) announces LibreOffice 3.6.4, for Windows, MacOS and Linux. This new release is another step forward in the process of improving the overall quality and stability for any kind of deployment, on personal desktops or inside organizations and companies of any size.

LibreOffice 3.6.4 arrives a couple of weeks after the successful LiMux HackFest, where more than 30 developers have gathered to hack LibreOffice code and work on features and patches. One result is this video – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gIqOOajdYQ&hd=1 – by Peter Baumgarten and Christian Lohmeier, showing how easy it is to build LibreOffice on your own to get involved in the project.

Additional results can be found on the wiki: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Hackfest/Munich2012#Achievements.

LibreOffice hacker community will gather again at FOSDEM 2013, in a focused DevRoom – http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Marketing/Events/Fosdem2013 – dedicated to attracting new hackers around the code of the best free office suite ever. Call for papers ends on December 23, 2012.

LibreOffice users, free software advocates and community members can support The Document Foundation with a donation. There is a donation page – with many options including PayPal and credit cards – at http://donate.libreoffice.org, to support the fundraising campaign for 2013.

LibreOffice 3.6.4 is available for immediate download from the following link: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/. Extensions for LibreOffice are available from the following link: http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center.

Change logs are available at http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/src/bugfixes-libreoffice-3-6-4-release-3.6.4.1.log (fixed in 3.6.4.1) and http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/src/bugfixes-tag-libreoffice-3.6.4.3-release-3.6.4.3.log (fixed in 3.6.4.3).

  1. the Linux installer downloads this file:
    LibO_3.6.4_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz
    which contains this directory:
    LibO_3.6.4.3_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US…
    Whereas the Help file is named and contains what the upgrade says it is: LibO_3.6.4_Linux_x86_helppack-deb_en-US.tar.gz…
    What gives?

  3. Why not mantain a PPA for LibreOffice?? it would make a lot easier to update a large number of computers than haviang to do it manually.

    • There are already a PPA where you can find the latest version (ppa:libreoffice/ppa) and a PPA for pre-releases (ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-prereleases) which are unofficially maintained by Ubuntu. If you are using Debian, you can find the latest version of LibreOffice in Testing, Unstable and Experimental (maintained by Rene Engelhard).
