The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.1.1
The Spanish region of Valencia migrates to LibreOffice 120,000 PCs
Berlin, August 29, 2013 – The Document Foundation (TDF) announces LibreOffice 4.1.1, for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. This is the first minor release of the LibreOffice 4.1 family, which features a large number of improved interoperability features with proprietary and legacy file formats.
The new release is a step forward in the process of improving the overall quality and stability of LibreOffice 4.1. For enterprise adoptions, though, The Document Foundation suggests LibreOffice 4.0.5, backed by certified professionals.
LibreOffice 4.1.1 arrives a few days after the announcement of the Spanish autonomous region of Valencia’s migration to LibreOffice on 120,000 PCs, which will save the government some 1.5 million Euro per year on proprietary software licenses.
The LibreOffice ecosystem continues to grow at a steady pace, with an average of over 100 active developers per month since February 2013. These figures tops the cumulative number of over 700 new developers attracted by the project since the announcement on September 28, 2010.
LibreOffice 4.1.1 is available for immediate download from the following link: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/. Change logs are available at the following links: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/4.1.1/RC1 (fixed in 18.104.22.168) and https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/4.1.1/RC2 (fixed in 22.214.171.124).

I am using LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 on Windows 8. I have used it for importing and exporting complex Word 2013 format documents, with watermarks, tables, images, headers, footers, TOCs, and footnotes, and I have to say, this version is a clear winner. Great work!!!
