Announcement of LibreOffice 7.6.3 Community and LibreOffice Viewer app for Android in the Google Play Store

Android logoBerlin, November 23, 2023 – LibreOffice 7.6.3 Community, the third minor release of the 7.6 family of the volunteer-supported free office suite for Windows (Intel/AMD and ARM processors), macOS (Apple and Intel processors) and Linux is now available from our download page.

At the same time, the LibreOffice Viewer app for Android is back in the Google Play Store, to view documents based on the standard Open Document Format and the proprietary Microsoft Office format. It joins the F-Droid version which has been available for some time.

LibreOffice is the only open source office suite for personal productivity which can be compared feature-by-feature with the market leader. LibreOffice offers the highest level of compatibility in the office suite market segment, with native support for the Open Document Format (ODF) – beating proprietary formats for security and robustness – to superior support for Microsoft Office files, along with filters for a large number of legacy document formats, to return ownership and control to users.

Based on the advanced features of the LibreOffice Technology platform for personal productivity on desktop, mobile and cloud, LibreOffice provides a large number of new features targeted at users sharing documents with or migrating from Microsoft Office to ensure their digital independence from the commercial strategy of vendors. These users should check new releases of LibreOffice on a regular basis, as the progress is so fast, that each new version improves dramatically over the previous one.

LibreOffice for Enterprises

For enterprise-class deployments, TDF strongly recommends the LibreOffice Enterprise family of applications from ecosystem partners – for desktop, mobile and cloud – with a number of value-added features and benefits such as SLA (Service Level Agreements): see this page.

Every line of code developed by ecosystem companies for their enterprise customers is shared with the community on the master code repository, and improves the LibreOffice Technology platform.

The Document Foundation has developed a Migration Protocol to support enterprises moving from proprietary office suites to LibreOffice, which is based on the adoption of an enterprise optimized version of LibreOffice, plus migration consultancy and training sourced from certified professionals who offer value-added solutions and services to match proprietary offerings:

Indeed, LibreOffice – thanks to its mature codebase, rich feature set, strong support for open standards, excellent compatibility and LTS options from certified partners – is the ideal solution for businesses that want to regain control of their digital independence, and free themselves from vendor lock-in.
