  • Over in Uganda, Emmanuel Semutenga is helping young people in Kampala to improve their IT skills – using LibreOffice and other free software tools. He told us about his experiences and what advice he has for other projects with similar goals.

  • Next year’s LibreOffice Conference will be held in Nuremberg, Germany – and it’ll be a joint conference with the openSUSE project. And we need a logo! You can help us to design this logo and win a mystery box at the end… Here are the logos for the 2019 conferences, for inspiration:

  • Finally, LibreOffice celebrated its 9th birthday near the end of the month. We’d like to say a huge thanks to all users, supporters, developers and donators who’ve helped to make LibreOffice possible. Here’s to another nine years!
