Berlin, November 3, 2015 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 5.0.3 “fresh”, the 4th release of the LibreOffice 5.0 family, and LibreOffice 4.4.6, the 7th release of the LibreOffice 4.4 family. So far, the LibreOffice 5.0 family is the most popular LibreOffice ever, based on feedback from journalists and end users.
LibreOffice 5.0.3 is more feature-rich, and as such is targeted to tech enthusiasts and power users, and LibreOffice 4.4.6 is targeted to more conservative users and enterprise deployments as it has been in widespread use for a longer time, and as such offers a better experience for document production.
All LibreOffice users should update their software at least to LibreOffice 4.4.6, for security reasons.
The Document Foundation strongly suggests to deploy LibreOffice in enterprises and large organizations with the backing of professional support by a certified individual (http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/professional-support/).
Both software packages include many fixes introduced since the previous version, which are listed on change logs for people interested in technical details:
