LibreOffice 4.2 is the most recent stable version of our software and marks a major milestone for the LibreOffice project.
LibreOffice comes with a host of new features for its users as well as several important changes and improvements under the hood.
Below are some noticeable changes brought by this version and you can get the full list in the release notes.
Collaborate with others
LibreOffice now integrates with Content Management Systems and online document storage via the CMIS standard. This allows you to access directly documents stored on ECM systems, be they Open Source like Alfresco, Nuxeo or proprietary, like Microsoft SharePoint.
Theme your office suite the way you like !
Make use of Firefox's personas to make your LibreOffice even more personal! Personnas (now renamed "Firefox themes") are background images to embellish your user interface: thousands of them have been made available by the Firefox community and creating your own is a breeze.
Contributing is even easier than ever !
Gerrit is used for our code review and easy contribution --- close to 1500 code changes reviewed and merged with it!
Ever improving interoperability
Conversion with non-natives formats, like RTF or DOCX have significantly improved, allowing you to import Ink annotations, import and export RTF native mathematical equations. You are now able to attach comments to document text ranges such as paragraphs.
VISIO and Publisher documents?
We have these covered! You can retrieve and reuse your graphical content stored in these formats and edit it with LibreOffice's tools.
