Early availability of LibreOffice 5.4.5 and LibreOffice 6.0.1: all users are invited to update for improved robustness and security

Berlin, February 9, 2018 – The Document Foundation announces the earlier than planned release of LibreOffice 5.4.5 and LibreOffice 6.0.1, to solve issues which have popped up after the launch of LibreOffice 6.0. In addition, the new release has been leveraged to integrate a security patch.

Although members of the LibreOffice core development team were attending FOSDEM in Brussels to talk about LibreOffice and meet the FOSS community, they have immediately reacted to QA reports and provided the necessary patches. This confirms the level of responsiveness achieved by LibreOffice project.

All LibreOffice users are therefore strongly invited to update to the new versions:

  • Power users, early adopters and technology enthusiasts should update from the recently installed LibreOffice 6.0 to LibreOffice 6.0.1,

  • All individual users and organizations of any size should update from any other version of LibreOffice to LibreOffice 5.4.5.

Organizations should deploy LibreOffice with the backing of certified developers, migrators and trainers (an updated list is available at https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/professional-support/).

LibreOffice 5.4.5 bug and regression fixes are described here: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.4.5/RC1 while LibreOffice 6.0.1 bug and regression fixes are described here: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/6.0.1/RC1
