LibreOffice project and community recap: September 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…

  • Our biggest event in September was the LibreOffice Conference 2022! This was the first in-person conference since 2019, due to the pandemic, and it was a great opportunity to meet face-to-face, share ideas and make plans for the future of our projects. We live-streamed presentations – and will be uploading the videos next week. Stay tuned!

  • In September, we released two new updates for LibreOffice: 7.3.6 and 7.4.1. All users are recommended to upgrade 👍

  • LibreOffice is, as always, free of charge to download from our website. But now we’re offering it in the Mac App Store for a small price, to cover the costs of placing it there, and helping to fund future development on macOS-specific improvements. So if you want to get regular updates via the App Store and help to fund future development, you can get it there. (But it will remain totally free on the LibreOffice website, as mentioned.)

  • Help tocCrowdfund audio recording and playback in LibreOffice presentations! LibreOffice’s presentation tool, Impress, includes a bunch of features for home and office use. But one thing that’s missing is recording and playback for audio comments in presentations. This project aims to crowdfund the feature.
