Several new developers enter the Engineering Steering Committee

Berlin, October 4, 2013 – The Document Foundation (TDF) announces LibreOffice 4.1.2, for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. This is the second minor release of the LibreOffice 4.1 family, which features a large number of improved interoperability features with proprietary and legacy file formats.

The new release is another step forward in the process of improving the overall quality and stability of LibreOffice 4.1. For enterprise adoptions, The Document Foundation suggests LibreOffice 4.0.5 (with 4.0.6 expected soon), supported by certified professionals.

LibreOffice 4.1.2 arrives one week after the LibreOffice Conference in Milan, where the community has gathered from all over the world to discuss software development and quality assurance, in addition to ODF, interoperability with proprietary document formats, community and marketing.

During the conference, several new developers have joined the Engineering Steering Committee, which has now 18 members: Stephan Bergmann – Red Hat, Rene Engelhard – Volunteer, Lionel Mamane – Volunteer, Adam Fyne – CloudOn, Christian Lohmair – TDF, Michael Meeks – Collabora, Bjoern Michaelsen – Canonical, Markus Mohrhard – Collabora (intern), Caolan McNamara – Red Hat, Eike Rathke – Red Hat, David Tardon – Red Hat, Norbert Thiebaud – Volunteer, Andras Timar – Collabora, Robinson Tryon – Volunteer, Eilidh McAdam – Lanedo, Mirek Mazel – Volunteer, Ahmad Hussein Al-Harthi – MOTAH, and Miklos Vajna – Collabora.

    Comment by mad madrasi — 2013/10/07 @ 05:35

    • The automatic updater doesn’t work in LibreOffice for Windows and Mac OS X. You have to download the new version and install manually.

  20. The download randomly stops after a few minutes showing a corrupt file. The corrupt message doesn’t show until partway through the installation, AFTER uninstall the previous version of LibreOffice. I’ve tried several times to download the latest version and every instance fails. So far though, the SourceForge download seems to be completing and I assume it is identical.

  21. We really like if libreoffice make its icons stunning. If you want to attract and migrate million microsoft word users, improve the appearance, please. Why libreoffice do not make campaign to invite people to participate in designing the appereance, such as making summer camp, and so on.

    • What LO really need – is full MS documents formats support.
      Until LO have it, it almost useless.

      Comment by BF3000 — 2013/10/14 @ 07:58

      • You seem to be unaware of the fact that MS formats are intentionally developed to make interoperability a nightmare. Why don’t you ask MS to develop truly open and transparent standards, instead of obfuscated bloat?
        Apart from that, it is quite funny that LibreOffice is good for the French Government, for instance, to exchange million of documents on a daily basis with MS Office users, and it is almost useless for you.

      • It works perfectly for me

        Comment by Titus C — 2013/10/14 @ 10:30

      • So far, I am happy with LO’s interoperability with MS. The only thing I need from LO is customization where user can customize – design and change – the icons himself. LO has making positive progress by using Persona template. We really like if we can do the same for the icons, too. We hope it can happen for the next version.

  22. Inter-operates well enough for our very big business. The transition from MS to LibreOffice was painless just got to learn to do some things slightly differently, organisational rollout via GP easy, updating it is very easy. What did surprise me is how many staff weren’t aware of it.
