TDF announces LibreOffice 5.4.7
Berlin, May 17, 2018 – The Document Foundation (TDF) announces LibreOffice 5.4.7, the last minor release of the LibreOffice 5.4 family, currently targeted at mainstream users and enterprises.
TDF suggests deploying LibreOffice in production environments with the backing of certified developers, migrators and trainers (an updated list is available at https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/professional-support/). This is extremely important for the growth of the LibreOffice ecosystem.
LibreOffice 5.4.7 includes almost 60 bug and regression fixes. Technical details about the release can be found in the change logs: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.4.7/RC1 (fixed in RC1) and https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.4.7/RC2 (fixed in RC2).
LibreOffice 5.4.7 is immediately available for download at the following link: https://www.libreoffice.org/download/download/.
LibreOffice users, free software advocates and community members can support The Document Foundation with a donation at https://www.libreoffice.org/donate/. Donations help TDF to maintain its infrastructure, share knowledge, and fund the presence of volunteers at events like LibreOffice Conference, where they can meet with free software advocates coming from all over the world.
Several companies sitting in TDF’s Advisory Board (https://www.documentfoundation.org/governance/advisory-board/) provide either value-added LTS versions of LibreOffice or consultancy services for migrations and training, based on best practices distilled by The Document Foundation.
Just had a problem. Downloaded the 5.4.7 version, but it downloaded the x86 version, even though the path showed the x86-64 directory above? Then it wouldn’t run because a 32 bit library was there.
Had to manually uninstall, and then reinstall the previous version that does download with the x86-64 versions of the rpms, so have it running the older version again.
email I sent to list.
Just downloaded the update of th 5.4.7 and the directory shows x86_64, but the
actual file downloaded just has the x86.
After install trying to run it gives
/opt/libreoffice5.4/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries:
libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I do have the library in the /usr/lib64 directory
So, not sure why the x86 version rpm is download?
Had to uninstall, since I don’t have the 32 bit library above.
Reinstalled the previous version
rpm -qa | grep libreoffice
The error showed the i586 version??
Not clear how the install went thru with no error I saw, had to run from
command line to see the error??
Thanks Love LibreOffice.
