  • Our documentation team released an updated edition of the LibreOffice Calc Guide 7.4 (revision 1) with new contents on sparklines and conditional formatting. Typos and last minute mistakes and formatting were also fixed in this release. Great work!

  • Meanwhile, we released LibreOffice 7.4.2, the second minor update to the 7.4 branch. All users are recommended to update, for maximum reliability and security.

  • Dominique Welt, Ph.D. Candidate and instructor at McGill University, told us about a presentation: “Using LibreOffice Base to Teach Relational Database Management”.

  • On October 20, TDF announced the availability of LibreOffice for Windows on the Microsoft Store, to support end users who want to get their desktop software from Microsoft’s own sales channel. There’s a convenience fee of €4.59, which will be invested to further support development of the LibreOffice project. But the suite will remain free of charge to download from the main website.

  • Finally, we launched a new “Liason” role in the Native Language Communities. This role aims to improve the communication between the global projects, The Document Foundation and the local communities. This communication should be directed in two ways: keep local communities informed on what is happening internationally, and keep the international community informed of what is achieved by the local communities. If you’re interested, we look forward to hearing from you 😊
