Open source office suite libreoffice version 6.0.2 is now available. This newest version of LibreOffice was released on March first two thousand eighteen. 50 bug and regression fixes are included in this update.
This time the Document Foundation released a catalog of these fixes in a change log. The document foundation released version 5.4.5 of LibreOffice as well. I have since removed LibreOffice from my Windows 10 computer.
I now use the portable version of LibreOffice, which does NOT require you to go through an installation process. Also, this saves around 100 megabytes of disk space. I prefer running applications in portable formats, whenever possible.
LibreOffice is an entirely FREE open source office suite comparable to Microsoft Office. I have been using open source office suite software for over a decade now. LibreOffice is my office suite of choice, for at least five years now.
You can open up many types of Microsoft office documents within libreoffice. Also, you can open up many types of libreoffice documents with Microsoft office suite. LibreOffice has an automatic update notifier.
You can always manually download the most current version of LibreOffice suite. LibreOffice is compatible with Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh, and Linux operating systems. Microsoft Windows XP service pack 3, Vista, 7, 8, 10, server 2008, and server 2010 operating systems are supported. Apple Macintosh operating system 10.8 mountain lion or newer are supported.
Linux operating system distributions with Linux kernel version 2.6.18 or newer, glibc2 version 2.5 or newer, and gtk version 2.10.4 or newer are supported. Also, there is an open source office suite libreoffice suite viewer version for the Google Android operating system, which I have never tried before. Finally, there is a portable version of LibreOffice that will work on a Universal Serial Bus device, cloud, or local drive.
I have now tested out LibreOffice portable and so far have NOT noticed any problems. This frees up an additional 100 megabytes of disk space. I prefer maintaining Microsoft Windows based computers with the least amount of software installed as possible.
