Berlin, May 7, 2019 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 6.1.6, the 6th minor release of the LibreOffice 6.1 family, targeted to users in production environments. This is a more mature version of the software which includes some months of back-ported fixes.
LibreOffice 6.1.6’s change log pages, with a list of bug and regression fixes, are available on TDF’s wiki: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/6.1.6/RC1 (changed in RC1) https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/6.1.6/RC2 (changed in RC2) and https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/6.1.6/RC3 (changed in RC3).
LibreOffice users are invited to join the community at https://ask.libreoffice.org, where they can get and provide user-to-user support. While TDF can not provide commercial level support, there are guides, manuals, tutorials and HowTos on the website and the wiki. Your donations help us make these available.
Organizations looking for an enterprise class application backed by support and service level agreements (SLA) should source a LibreOffice LTS (Long Term Supported) version from those TDF Advisory Board members who provide this product (https://www.documentfoundation.org/governance/advisory-board/).
Also, value-added services for enterprise class deployments – related to software support, migrations and training – should be sourced from certified professionals (https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/professional-support/).
Sourcing software and/or services from the ecosystem of certified professionals represents the best support option for enterprises deploying LibreOffice on a large number of desktops. In fact, these activities are contributed back to the project under the form of improvements to the software and the community, and trigger a virtuous circle which is beneficial to users and all other stakeholders.
Availability of LibreOffice 6.1.6
LibreOffice 6.1.6 is immediately available from the following link: https://www.libreoffice.org/download/. Minimum requirements for proprietary operating systems are Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 and Apple macOS 10.9. Builds of the latest LibreOffice Online source code are also available as Docker images: https://hub.docker.com/r/libreoffice/online/.
LibreOffice Online is fundamentally a server-based platform, and should be installed and configured by adding cloud storage and an SSL certificate. It might be considered an enabling technology for the cloud services offered by ISPs or the private cloud of enterprises and large organizations.
