LibreOffice project and community recap: January 2022
Here’s our summary of updates, events and activities in the LibreOffice project in the last four weeks – click the links to learn more…
- We started the month by announcing our plans for FOSDEM, which will take place online on February 5 – 6. The LibreOffice community will be present with many talks – join us!
- Early in January, we released LibreOffice 7.2.5 with 90 bugfixes and compatibility improvements.
- Our awesome documentation community created a macOS version of the LibreOffice Writer Guide 7.2. This includes changes specific to the macOS version of the suite.
- Over in the localisation project, we announced initial Klingon and Interslavic support in LibreOffice. If you have some knowledge of either of these languages, give us a hand!
- There was another guidebook update from our docs team in January: The LibreOffice Draw Guide 7.2. This covers the vector image editing component.
- In the middle of the month, we talked to Baltasar García Perez-Schofield about his work on the Basic interpreter, and becoming a Member of The Document Foundation.
- Meanwhile, we noticed that many OpenOffice users are receiving warning dialogs when opening files made in LibreOffice. This is because LibreOffice supports newer versions of OpenDocument Format, its native format, which aren’t available in OpenOffice. Click here to learn more.
- And finally, we reported on the European Commission’s new bug bounty programme, for finding and fixing security holes in free and open source software projects like LibreOffice.
