Announcement of LibreOffice 6.1.2 at LibreOffice Conference

Tirana (Albania), September 27, 2018 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 6.1.2, the second minor release of the LibreOffice 6.1 family, targeted at early adopters, technology enthusiasts and power users. The new release was launched during the LibreOffice Conference 2018, in Tirana, the capital city of Albania. LibreOffice 6.1.2 provides around 70 bug and regression fixes over the previous version.

LibreOffice 6.1.2 bug and regression fixes are described in the change log page: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/6.1.2/RC1 (changed in RC1).

Enterprise deployments

LibreOffice 6.1.2 represents the bleeding edge in term of features for open source office suites, and as such is targeted at technology enthusiasts, early adopters and power users.

For any enterprise class deployment, TDF maintains the more mature LibreOffice 6.0.6, which should be sourced from a company providing a Long Term Supported version of the suite (they are all members of TDF Advisory Board, and are listed here: https://www.documentfoundation.org/governance/advisory-board/).

Also, value-added services for migrations and trainings, to support enterprise class deployments in large organizations, should be sourced from certified professionals (list available here: https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/professional-support/).

LibreOffice is deployed by large organizations in every continent. A list of some large or significant migrations announced in the media is available on the TDF wiki: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/LibreOffice_Migrations.

Minimum requirements for proprietary operating systems are Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 and Apple macOS 10.9.
