New and changed features – experience and test them now!

Hi all,

This is the second post with a list of features/functions that have been worked on recently.

We tried our best to include all the important ones and to make sure that the referred information is clear enough. But whenever you miss something: don’t hesitate to ask (via the QA mail list) if there is anything you really miss.

Just as the previous post, this all is to give you as interested users the change to take a better look at the work and provide valuable feed back for the developers.

You can simply download the latest nightly build, and install it on your computer. It will be placed beside your current LibreOffice. (Or you may want to do a custom parallel installation.) Look at the features of your desire or that you work with most, and give some feedback. Simple as that.
