The work on providing new extensions and templates for LibreOffice is in progress. The open source productivity suite will receive the latest experience through a new website that is apparently under process.

LibreOffice developer Andreas Mantke has revealed that the new extension and templates for LibreOffice would require just one account. This will help contributors login and add their work on their new account without using any Plone service.

“We are currently short before we move over to the new website. The new site will contain extensions and templates. We will not have to Plone sites for this purpose. Thus LibreOffice extension or/and template contributors will need only one account in the future,” wrote Mantke in a blog post.

The work for migrating content from the current site to the new site is currently going on. Moreover, the team will move over everything to the new website before publishing the new version.

Early beta version emerges

While the new website is yet to be launched, an early beta version of LibreOffice 5.3 is available for download. The new version is a complete makeover from its preceding build.

Developers can test the latest beta version on any of their Linux, macOS or Windows system. It is available for download on the official website and its final version is expected to be released in January 2017.
