LibreOffice 4.2.5 hits the marketplace

Filed under: Announcements, LibreOffice — italovignoli @ 11:25

Berlin, June 20, 2014 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.2.5 “Fresh”, the fifth minor release of the most feature rich version of the software, ready for enterprise deployments. For more conservative users, The Document Foundation suggests LibreOffice 4.1.6 “Stable”.

LibreOffice 4.2.5, as well as LibreOffice 4.1.6, have been developed by over 800 contributors, who have joined the project since the launch in late September 2010 (source: http://www.ohloh.net). “This is a wonderful achievement”, said Thorsten Behrens, Chairman of The Document Foundation. “We have managed to attract at least three new contributors per month, for 46 months in a row, with an average of more than 200 new contributors per year”.

People interested in technical details about the release can access the change logs here: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/4.2.5/RC1 (fixed in RC1) and here: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/4.2.5/RC2 (fixed in RC2). In total, over 150 bugs or regressions have been solved.

Download LibreOffice

LibreOffice 4.2.5 and LibreOffice 4.1.6 are both available for download from the following link: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/. Extensions and templates to complement the installation of the software and add specific features are available here: http://extensions.libreoffice.org/.

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.

  4. Great job done, thank you so much!!! :)

    I have downloaded it by torrent & am seeding it. There are so many people getting LibreOffice (LO) this way, how are you guys going to keep a count on the downloads? Please don’t stop torrents because it’s a fast & convenient way to get LO.

    Thanks for giving a link for Extensions.

    Feedback:
    Please include a link for Documentation in both your blog & press releases & please include a link on the Download page as well.

    The reason I suggest you give pride of place to Documentation & User manuals is because LibreOffice’s help is excellent, however, reading it from an eBook is great as well.

    Please could you also add links on your download &/or your documentation page to these free lessons that have been published on the University of Pittsburgh website by my friend Mr. Bernard John Poole:

    Thanks!

  5. Another quick point on why highlighting Documentation is so important is that unless people are informed & made aware of the numerous features they will not know about it, then all the hard work put in, to implement these features will go waste. As stated by Sir William Osler, I think, ‘The eye can not see what the mind does not know’.

  6. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for
    your weblog. You have some really good posts and I feel I
    would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d
    absolutely love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please shoot me an e-mail if interested. Many thanks!

  12. LibreOffice/ OpenOffice like MS Office has tons of features & can be used well offline.

    Google Docs is excellent for collaboration.

    There used to be a very useful extension of LibreOffice that helped immensely with collaboration: https://code.google.com/p/ooo2gd

    But it has stopped working possibly due to internal changes in Google Docs & ZOHO. The developer of this extension could not be reached by me & may have stopped developing it. If this kind of extension is made it will have the following benefits:
    1) Google Docs & ZOHO will have offline feature parity with LibreOffice.
    2) LibreOffice will have amazing online collaboration.
    This will have a symbiotic & synergistic effect, setting up a virtuous cycle.

    Google actively supports LO, so hoping this is done.

    It would be great if Google or LibreOffice developed such an extension. It will be a win-win situation & a healthy relationship. :)

    Both LO & Google Docs will get millions of more users by this implementation …
