Berlin/Aarhus, September 23, 2015 – The Document Foundation has announced LibreOffice 5.0.2 during the opening session of the LibreOffice Conference, to underline the importance of the event for the community. LibreOffice Conference has opened today, and will be closing on Friday, September 25.
LibreOffice 5.0.2 is the second minor release of the LibreOffice 5.0 family, with a large number of fixes over the first minor release announced in August. So far, the LibreOffice 5.0 family is the most popular LibreOffice ever, based on feedback from the marketplace.
LibreOffice 5.02 will offer OpenGL rendering by default on Windows for the first time, for those with the very latest windows drivers. The functionality is easy to disable in case of issues by accessing Tools > Options.
LibreOffice 5.0.2 is targeted to technology enthusiasts, early adopters and power users. For more conservative users, and for enterprise deployments, TDF suggests the “still” version: LibreOffice 4.4.5. For enterprise deployments, The Document Foundation recommends the backing of professional support by certified people (a list is available at: http://www.documentfoundation.org/certification/).
