LibreOffice 5.3.4

The Document Foundation has released LibreOffice 5.3.4 as the new version of its open source productivity suite. The fresh build is designed to enhance the experience for existing Microsoft Office users.

LibreOffice 5.3.4 has implemented over 100 patches that include a “significant number of fixes” for interoperability with Microsoft RT and OOXML documents. The package also addresses issues with DOCX importing and refines the experience of using RTF documents.

“The Document Foundation announces the availability of LibreOffice 5.3.4, the fourth release of the LibreOffice 5.3 family, targeted at technologies, enthusiasts, early adopters and power users,” LibreOffice project founder Italo Vignoli said in a blog post.

Previous version suggested for enterprises

Despite the arrival of new features within the latest version, the Document Foundation recommends LibreOffice 5.2.7 for enterprise deployments. The reason behind suggesting the older version is the backing of professional support that is yet to arrive for the new release.

You can download LibreOffice 5.3.4 from its official website. The Document Foundation is also providing Flatpak and Snap versions for the new release to support advanced technologies.
