Finally after what seemed like forever! LibreOffice 5.0 is out!
“LibreOffice 5.0 is the tenth major release since the launch of the project and and the first of the third development cycle. LibreOffice is a full feature open source office suite which compares head to head with every product in the same category, while it stands out for superior interoperability features.”
I’ve downloaded it for both Windows and Linux. And I immediately noticed the different GUI elements implemented into LibreOffice 5 in comparison with 4.x which are differently cleaner and takes less screen space!
Thanks to improved filters the compatibility between LibreOffice and other office suits like Microsoft Office has improved. And a lot of under the hood work has been done to improve the stability and reduce the crashes overall.
Version 5 with be the foundation of the Android version, Ubuntu touch, and the upcoming cloud version.
Note: if you are downloading the 64x version for Windows you are going to need a 64x Java machine.
It looks really good and I can’t wait to sink my teeth into it and make full use of it’s amazing features!
