LibreOffice 3.3.4 is Ready for Download
The Document Foundation announces the availability of LibreOffice 3.3.4, a new release of the free office suite’s 3.3 branch. The new version is available for download at http://www.libreoffice.org/download
LibreOffice 3.3.4 fixes several bugs, the next maintenance release 3.3.5 is scheduled for October. In the meantime, development is continuing on the 3.4 series, which offers new features. The next version in that branch – LibreOffice 3.4.3 – is expected by the end of August.
The Document Foundation maintains two editions of LibreOffice: version 3.3.x caters to conservative users, who wish to stick to a proven release in deep maintenance mode, with increasingly infrequent updates, while the 3.4 branch provides a more modern and featurefull release. We therefore strongly recommend everyone to update to the 3.4 series in the near future.
LibreOffice 3.3.4 is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, in over 100 different languages (more than twice the language coverage of comparable proprietary products).
Detailed technical change logs are available at http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/src/bugfixes-libreoffice-3-3-release-220.127.116.11.log and http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/src/commit-log-libreoffice-3-3-release-18.104.22.168.log
The next events where you can meet developers and community members will be the LibreOffice Hackfest, taking place this September in Munich (http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Hackfest2011) and the LibreOffice Conference, taking place this October in Paris (http://conference.libreoffice.org/conference-registration/)
thanks for the information on update and explanation of the 3.3 and 3.4 branch.
where possible I like the newest developments so I’ll download the latest 3.4.x
Congratulations on applying the long fixed ppt save bug – 32709 – please bring this to the 3.4.x series soon!
It is really confusing to have two release series at the same time. Just check the http://www.libreoffice.org/download page. How are new users to know what the difference between a “green icon with a checkmark” and “blue icon with an i” releases is? You don’t explain that and you don’t link to an explanation.
Why not just post the 3.4 release big and up top and then provide a smaller textlink to “alternative long maintainance version 3.3 …” somewhere below that?
