LibreOffice 4.0.0 released

by Rob Zwetsloot

LibreOffice 4.0.0 is finally here, and marks a full departure from the OpenOffice code of old, with a new Android remote control app and CMIS support

The journey away from OpenOffice for LibreOffice has been a long and successful one, and now LibreOffice is finally leaving the main version numbering behind from the old code. LibreOffice 4.0 is here, and while it’s not the biggest update the software has had, it’s symbolic of things to come.

The featured updates may not seem that major, but they’re important in their own way. CMIS support has been added, there’s now an Android remote control app for Impress, comments have been improved, and there’s now support for VISIO and Publisher documents. For Writer you can now import ink annotations, Calc shows formula values from when they were last saved, and overall there’s a session installer to add missing components on the fly. Along with these additions, there are general improvements across the interface, code, and importing functions.

You can download LibreOffice 4.0.0 right now from the LibreOffice site.

      >> VISIO and Publisher documents.

      Wow. That is a big one. I can remember allot of people creating documents in publisher and you would be lost. You could not read these silly files created by a WYSIWYG version of Word.

      Good job.
