The Document Foundation (TDF), the charitable entity behind LibreOffice, the leading free office suite, today announces the upcoming availability of @libreoffice.org addresses for its members, starting July 1st. To foster the rapidly growing community and help it with their daily engagement, the foundation will provide a variety of free services under this domain. As of today, these are:
- an e-mail address with a fully-featured IMAP account, alternatively an e-mail forwarder
- a Jabber/XMPP address for instant messaging
- a SIP/VoIP account for voice conferencing
Those services will be, beginning July 1st, provided free of charge to all members of The Document Foundation, and are made possible with the generous help of our supporters, whom we’d like to thank on behalf of the community!
The SIP accounts are provided by iptel.org, the free VoIP service since 2002. The Jabber/XMPP accounts, that feature a shared roster for members to see immediately who else is online, are courtesy of ProcessOne, experts in personalized instant messaging, using Hosted.IM platform. The professional e-mail accounts, supporting server-side filtering, shared folders and webmail access, are hosted by the mail server experts of Heinlein Support.
By using this new and free service, the community not only has access to up-to-date communication tools that easen their daily lives, but also can proudly show their support and appreciation for LibreOffice.
Membership at TDF is free and open to everyone who contributes to the community. Join us today at http://www.documentfoundation.org/foundation/application-for-tdf-community-membership/
All details on applying for the new free service will be made public on July 1st, 2013, and sent out to all eligible members.
