LibreOffice 6.1: A week in stats

On August 8, we announced LibreOffice 6.1, a new version of the suite with many great features and updates created by our worldwide community. Let’s look at some stats from the last week!


These are just stats for our official downloads page, of course – some Linux users will have acquired the new release via their distribution’s package repositories. And we still offer the LibreOffice 6.0 branch which is especially suited to enterprise deployments.

Over 32,000 views of our Reddit “Ask us Anything”

One day after the release, team and board members from The Document Foundation, along with some community members, organised an “Ask us Anything” session on the /r/linux subreddit. This was an opportunity for free software and GNU/Linux fans to ask us all about the new release, and indeed anything else about LibreOffice. We had 205 comments and 312 upvotes.

But there’s more to come!

A huge thanks to our community for making LibreOffice 6.1 happen! But we’re not done yet; we’re already busy adding new features and updates to LibreOffice 6.2, which is due for release early next year – and you can help out!
