  • Also, we’ve been uploading presentation videos from the conference. Apologies for the echo in the audio, but it’s the best we could do given technical limitations of the venue – try using headphones and it should be a bit clearer. There are many more videos to come!
  • As a large open source project serving millions of end users, LibreOffice has extensive infrastructure. We talked to Guilhem Moulin, who is in charge of The Document Foundation’s infrastructure and services, about new developments and how others can get involved.

  • Meanwhile, the QA community organised the first Bug Hunting Session for LibreOffice 6.2, which is currently in development and due to be released in early February next year. There will be more sessions in the coming weeks, so if you want to help us make the next version super reliable, you can give us a hand!

  • We continued our series of “Community Member Monday” interviews, talking to Ahmad Haris from Indonesia and Onyeibo Oku from Nigeria.

  • Gökhan Gurbetoğlu from our Turkish community organised some LibreOffice training in Istanbul. 25 people were present and Gökhan focused on Writer and Calc.

  • Finally, the German community and CIB organised a Hackfest in Munich, with 25 participants who worked on bugfixes, polishing features, and sharing information. Oh, and there was great pasta as well!
