Linux News Today: LibreOffice 5.1.2 Officially Released with Over 80 Bug Fixes and Improvements
We have just been informed by Italo Vignoli of The Document Foundation about the availability of second maintenance release of the LibreOffice 5.1 open-source office suite.
LibreOffice 5.1.2 is the second point release in the current stable and most advanced version of the office suite preinstalled in numerous GNU/Linux operating systems by default, and it comes approximately one month after the release of the first maintenance build to fix many of the bugs reported by users.
“LibreOffice 5.1.2 is targeted at technology enthusiasts, early adopters and power users. For more conservative users, and for enterprise deployments, TDF suggests the “still” version: LibreOffice 5.0.5. For enterprise deployments, The Document Foundation suggests the backing of professional support by certified people,” reads today’s announcement.
LibreOffice 5.1.2 appears to have had two RC (Release Candidate) builds issued over the month of March, during which the team of developers behind the widely used open-source office suite hunted down and fixed over 80 issues, as well as to add various tweaks and optimizations, keeping the software stable and reliable at all times.
LibreOffice 5.1.2 is a recommended update for anyone running LibreOffice 5.1.1 or a previous release of the office application. GNU/Linux users should check for the new version on the official repositories of their distributions in the coming days. You can also download the LibreOffice 5.1.2 binaries and sources for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows OSes from our website.
