Berlin, October 30, 2014 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.3.3, the third minor release of LibreOffice 4.3 “fresh” family, and LibreOffice 4.2.7, the last minor release of LibreOffice 4.2 “still” family. Together, there are over 200 fixes for bugs and regressions.
LibreOffice 4.3.3 “Fresh” is a stable release of the more advanced version of the software, and is targeted to users focusing on features. LibreOffice 4.2.7 “Still” is a stable release of the more tested version of the software, and is targeted to users focusing on continuity. Both versions can be deployed in enterprise environments, according to corporate policies, when backed by professional support.
“This is the first time we are releasing the fresh and still versions on the same day, and this represents a good opportunity to explain that we maintain two concurrent versions of the software to provide the best option to both power and conservative users, because they focus on different characteristics of the application”, explains Italo Vignoli, a spokesperson for The Document Foundation. “In both cases, though, we strongly suggest to back enterprise deployments with professional support, to get the best out of LibreOffice”.
