Berlin, May 7, 2015 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.4.3, the third minor release of the LibreOffice 4.4 “fresh” family, with over 80 fixes over LibreOffice 4.4.2. New features introduced by LibreOffice 4.4 are listed on this wiki page: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/4.4.
The Document Foundation suggests to deploy LibreOffice in enterprises and large organizations with the backing of professional support by certified people (a list is available at: http://www.documentfoundation.org/certification/).

Get involved: LibreOffice 5.0 and LibreOffice Conference
The LibreOffice community is actively working at next major release, LibreOffice 5.0, expected in late July 2015. The first bug hunting session on the beta release is scheduled from May 22 to May 24, according to the details provided in this wiki page: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugHunting_Session_22.214.171.124.
Also, the Call for Paper for LibreOffice Conference 2015, which will be hosted by the Danish city of Aarhus from September 23 to September 25, is open until July 15, with further details on the website: http://conference.libreoffice.org/2015/call-for-papers/.
The LibreOffice community is growing, and these are exceptional opportunities to join the fun together with over 900 developers who have contributed to the code and over 3,000 volunteers who have localized the suite, chased the bugs, written the manuals, spoken at conferences, and advocated LibreOffice both at global and local levels.
LibreOffice 4.4.3 is immediately available for download from the following link: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/, where more conservative users can find the more tested LibreOffice 4.3.7. All users are suggested to update their installation to one of these two LibreOffice releases, for security reasons.
