The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 6.0.7 and LibreOffice 6.1.3: all users are invited to update for improved robustness and security

Berlin, November 5, 2018 – The Document Foundation announces the release of LibreOffice 6.0.7 and LibreOffice 6.1.3, which improve the quality and stability of previous releases, and integrate a security patch.

All LibreOffice users are therefore strongly recommended to update to the new versions:

  • Power users, early adopters and technology enthusiasts should update from LibreOffice 6.1.2 to LibreOffice 6.1.3, which represents the bleeding edge in term of features for open source office suites;
  • All other individual users and organizations of any size should update from any previous version of LibreOffice to LibreOffice 6.0.7, which is more mature and as such targeted at production environments and enterprise-class deployments.

Starting today: the Month of LibreOffice, November 2018!

Yes, it’s that time of the year again! As you probably know, LibreOffice is made by hundreds of people around the world. We have a busy community working on source code, documentation, translations, user support, marketing and many other topics. And throughout November, we want to give special credit to every contribution – and encourage even more people to get involved!…
