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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

Keep in touch – follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Mastodon. Like what we do? Support our community with a donation – or join us and help to make LibreOffice even better!
