Linux News Today: LibreOffice 5.0.6 Open-Source Office Suite Is Now Available for Download
We were informed just a few minutes ago by The Document Foundation’s Italo Vignoli about the immediate availability for download of the LibreOffice 5.0.6 “Still” open-source office suite.
LibreOffice 5.0.6 is the sixth maintenance version in the long-term supported, stable and reliable 5.0 branch of the acclaimed office suite software, which The Document Foundation recommends for deployments in large-scale organizations, such as various educational institutions like schools and universities, but also on enterprises and international companies that want to save money on their office budget.
“The Document Foundation suggests deploying LibreOffice 5.0.6 on a large scale only when backed by professional level 3 support from certified developers,” said Italo Vignoli. “When migrating to LibreOffice from proprietary office suites, organizations should seek professional support from certified migration consultants and trainers, which are listed on the same web page.”
What’s new in LibreOffice 5.0.6? Well, from the changelogs of the first and second Release Candidate (RC) builds, it looks like a total of 94 issues have been addressed for all of the office suite’s core components. Below, we’ve attached the full changelog for your reading pleasure, and in the meantime, you can download the binaries for GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows operating systems right now via our website.
In related news, we are reminded by Mr. Vignoli that the upcoming LibreOffice Conference 2016 will be hosted by the Faculty of Information Technology at Brno University of Technology, in Brno, Czech Republic. The event is organized by OpenAlt and will take place on September 7-9, 2016, so be there if you care about the future of the LibreOffice open-source office suite. Also, May 2016 is the Month of LibreOffice!
