After allowing a respectful delay to ensure as many people as possible have upgraded, TDF announces that the most recent release of LibreOffice includes some important security fixes. It's good to see they are doing pro-active research to improve security - and I'm impressed to see a member of staff from Tata involved too, I hadn't realised they were so active.

I checked, and they did submit details of the fix to the OpenOffice.org security mailing list in good time, but I doubt there will be an update of OOo from Apache soon so it would be smart to ensure you have LibreOffice 3.4.3 if you have any earlier releases of OpenOffice.org.

If LibreOffice maintains the pace of improvement Brian describes here, by the time work on OpenOffice resumes next year (yes, I really think it will take that long) the gap will be huge.

The Document Foundation keeps up the momentum with a fresh release of LibreOffice. The graphic explaining their release philiosophy is especially helpful.

A sensible move that will ensure Debian users have the most up-to-date version of the most complete office suite for Linux.

The FSF's statement is pretty balanced. I can't help thininking they were forced to comment after misinterpretations of their advice on licensing were forcefully asserted by the proposers of the Apache podling despite correction from an FSF Board member.

Rather surprised to see Oracle pulling out of OpenOffice so soon - I had assumed they would give it at least 18 months to prove itself. Let's hope they do the right thing and work with The Document Foundation to re-unite the project into a single community.

Congratulations to the Document Foundation team who have just released the first full version of LibreOffice. The key improvements are largely invisible to the user - creating a new build system that's more usable, tidying the code to make it easier for community members to participate, simplifying the Windows installer and more. But they provide a sound base for future development and make it easier for the community to grow far beyond what was possible with OpenOffice.org before.
