LibreOffice 6.0: The stats so far

On January 31, we released LibreOffice 6.0 (shortly followed up by 6.0.1). So what has happened in the last two weeks? Let’s look at some statistics…


Yes, there have been almost 1 million downloads of LibreOffice 6.0 since release day. Of course, this is just part of the overall downloads of LibreOffice – we also offer the “still” 5.4 family, which has reached version 5.4.5 and is more suited to enterprise deployments.

661,539 visits to our website

Our main website is the central resource for all things LibreOffice, including downloads, release notes, help, community support and more.

252,495 visits to our blog

Most of these were for the release announcement, but we’ve been posting other updates as well. On a related note, if you want to follow blog posts by other members of the LibreOffice community, check out the TDF Planet.

As with previous releases, for LibreOffice 6.0 we made a video showcasing some of the great new features. (And on the topic of videos, we’ve just uploaded talks and presentations from the LibreOffice community at FOSDEM, Europe’s biggest free software developer meetup – click here for the playlist.)

87,358 impressions of the announcement tweet

We use Twitter to spread the word about LibreOffice, free software and open standards, and thanks to our supporters who retweeted the announcement, over 87,000 people saw it. It also had 561 retweets and 621 likes.

Another social media platform we use is Facebook, where our page has 51,987 likes. In addition, we’re active on Google+ where we have 16,731 followers, and our announcement of LibreOffice 6.0 received 217 +1s.
