LibreOffice recognized as the most innovative Open Source software

INNOVATIONSPREIS-IT-2014-Logo-3500pxBerlin, March 13, 2014 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.2.2, the second minor release of the LibreOffice 4.2 family. Change log is available here: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/4.2.2/RC1.

LibreOffice 4.2.2 “Fresh” is the most feature rich version of the software, and is suited for early adopters willing to leverage a larger number of innovations. For enterprise deployments, The Document Foundation suggests the more reliable LibreOffice 4.1.5 “Stable”.

LibreOffice has just received the InnovationsPreis-IT 2014 for the category Open Source, awarded by Initiative Mittelstand during CeBIT in Hannover. Under the motto “be a part of IT”, the prize is a recognition of outstanding innovations in IT and is a testimonial of the work done by the LibreOffice international community since September 2010.

Download LibreOffice

LibreOffice 4.2.2 “Fresh” and LibreOffice 4.1.5 “Stable” are both available for download from the following link: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/.

LibreOffice users, free software advocates and community members can support The Document Foundation with a donation at http://donate.libreoffice.org. Money collected will be used to grow the project both at global and local level.

  3. Well, the “Fresh” and “Stable” labels are OK, but the note in the bottom of the download page telling

    LibreOffice is available in the following stable versions:

    4.1.5
    4.2.2

    looks somewhat misleading, especially for those who are not very techy (they are the intended target of those labels, aren’t they?), especially given that “stable” is emphasized…

    • The idea seems to be that there are two kinds of stable releases: mature and fresh. On the download page this could be made clearer by attaching the latter two adjectives directly to the respective version numbers.

      In the announcement above, the quotation marks around “Fresh” and “Mature” look a little like scare quotes, implying scepticism or irony. Obviously, that is not what is intended here, but perhaps it would be better to put the adjectives in parentheses.

      • OK, if it were “Mature”, then there would be no possible confusion. But for now, the older and recommended for wider usage version is labeled Stable, too. That’s the issue.

      • The wording in the announcement above seems a little… um… unstable. When I first read the announcement, version 4.1.5 was characterized as “Stable”, but when I wrote my earlier comment, it had been changed into “Mature”. Now it’s “Stable” again.

        I have to agree with Mike: if the mature version is labelled “Stable”, it is rather confusing to refer to the “Fresh” version as stable too.

  7. Hey, as it seems for today, you can actually get even newer version of LibreOffice already: 4.2.3 :)

  8. […] LibreOffice 4.2.2 (codenamed ‘Fresh’) packages for Slackware 14.1 and -current are ready too. The official announcement  considers LibreOffice 4.2.2 to be “the most feature rich version of the software, and is suited for early adopters willing to leverage a larger number of innovations“. However, the announcement continues with “For enterprise deployments, The Document Foundation suggests the more reliable LibreOffice 4.1.5 “Stable”.” Of course I have LibreOffice 4.1.5 packages, they are built on Slackware 14.0 and work well on Slackware 14.1 and -current. It’s your choice! […]

  11. Can someone please advise me? I notice that LibreOffice 4.2.2 “Fresh”, has no “Most Annoying Bugs” listed, whilst LibreOffice 4.1.5 “Stable” does have an annoying bug listed; “letters move around during editing/typing (fdo#64957)” – which to me would not qualify as a stable feature, and would most likely scare new adopters including enterprises off, from deploying LO. Am I correct therefore, in assuming that “LibreOffice 4.2.2 “Fresh”, is actually the more stable version?

    • The bug you refer to seems fixed in 4.2.2 but not in 4.1.5. Sometimes fixes are also backported to the mature version, but in this case apparently not. Thus, if that particular bug affects you, the fresh version may be a better choice. However, it is also possible that 4.2.2 has some new bugs that are not present in 4.1.5. Generally, the mature version should be more stable.

  12. I know this is not the best place to write this, but I can’t find a ‘Contact the webmaster’ link.

    The url for the RSS feed of this blog is not working. When I try to go to http://blog.documentfoundation.org/feed/, Firefox takes a lot of time to show an empty page. That URL worked fine until a few weeks ago.

    Will it be fixed?

    Thanks!
