Highlights of LibreOffice 7.6 Community

GENERAL

  • Support for zoom gestures when using touchpads in the main view.
  • Support for document themes, and import and export of theme definitions for ODF and OOXML documents.
  • Many improvements to font handling, especially for right-to-left scripts, CJK and other Asian alphabets.

WRITER

  • New Page Number Wizard in the Insert menu, for easy one-step insertion of the page number in the header/footer.
  • The Paragraph Style dropdown in the Formatting toolbar shows a list of styles used in the document, rather than the full list of the available styles.
  • Tables of Figures can be generated more flexibly based on paragraph styles, and not only from categories or object names.
  • Bibliography entries can be edited directly from a bibliography table, and bibliography marks hyperlink by default to the matching row in a bibliography table.
  • Highlighting for used paragraph and character styles and direct formatting in text.
  • Phrase checking: multi-word dictionary items of Hunspell and custom dictionaries are now accepted.

CALC

  • Number format: “?” is now supported when exporting to ODF to represent an integer digit, replaced by blank if it is a non-significant zero, and decimals for formats in seconds without truncation like [SS].00 are now accepted.
  • Spreadsheets copied to another document now retain a user-defined print range.
  • Solver settings are saved with documents, and page styles are exported even if they are not in use.
  • Support for drawing styles for shapes and comments, including a dedicated style for comments that makes it possible to customize the default look and text formatting of new comments.
  • New compact layout for pivot tables.
  • Autofilter support for sorting by colour. Filter/sort by color considers colours set by number format.
  • The Import Text dialog (as CSV file or as unformatted text) has a new option to not detect numbers in scientific notation (only if “Detect Special Numbers” is off).

IMPRESS & DRAW

  • New navigation panel for switching slides while viewing a presentation (option is enabled by flagging a checkbox in Slide Show Settings).
  • Objects can now be listed in front to back order in the Navigator, with the top-most object at the top of the list.
  • Support for free text annotations to PDFium import, plus support for ink, free text and polygon/polyline annotations in PDFium export.
  • Modified the auto-fitting text scaling algorithm to work in a way similar to MS Office. Text scaling now separates scaling for space (paragraph and line) and scaling fonts, where space scaling can be 100%, 90% and 80%, and font scaling is rounded to the nearest point size. Horizontal spacing (bullets, indents) is not scaled anymore.
  • Several improvements to font management for CJK and Arabic languages.

“Berlin, 26 September 2023 – The Document Foundation is releasing LibreOffice 7.6.2 Community and LibreOffice 7.5.7 Community ahead of schedule to address a security issue known as CVE 2023-4863, which originates in a widely used code library known as libwebp, created by Google more than a decade ago to render the then-new WebP graphics format [1].

In addition to the CVE, the two new versions fix other bugs and regressions and are available immediately from https://www.libreoffice.org/download [2]. All users of LibreOffice are encouraged to update their current version as soon as possible.”

The latest Fresh Branch 7.6.3.2 has been released. (23-November-2023)

The latest Still Branch 7.5.8.2 has been released. (23-November-2023)

Release Notes | Fresh & Still Branch Downloads | Blog |

Berlin, November 23, 2023 – LibreOffice 7.6.3 Community, the third minor release of the 7.6 family of the volunteer-supported free office suite for Windows (Intel/AMD and ARM processors), macOS (Apple and Intel processors) and Linux, is now available from our download page.

At the same time, the LibreOffice Viewer app for Android is back in the Google Play Store, to view documents based on the standard Open Document Format and the proprietary Microsoft Office format.

LibreOffice is the only open-source office suite for personal productivity which can be compared feature-by-feature with the market leader. LibreOffice offers the highest level of compatibility in the office suite market segment, with native support for the Open Document Format (ODF) – beating proprietary formats for security and robustness – to superior support for Microsoft Office files, along with filters for a large number of legacy document formats, to return ownership and control to users.

Based on the advanced features of the LibreOffice Technology platform for personal productivity on desktop, mobile and cloud, LibreOffice provides a large number of new features targeted at users sharing documents with or migrating from Microsoft Office to ensure their digital independence from the commercial strategy of vendors. These users should check new releases of LibreOffice on a regular basis, as the progress is so fast, that each new version improves dramatically over the previous one.

LibreOffice for Enterprises

For enterprise-class deployments, TDF strongly recommends the LibreOffice Enterprise family of applications from ecosystem partners – for desktop, mobile and cloud – with a number of value-added features and benefits such as SLA (Service-Level Agreements): see this page.

Every line of code developed by ecosystem companies for their enterprise customers is shared with the community on the master code repository, and improves the LibreOffice Technology platform.

The Document Foundation has developed a Migration Protocol to support enterprises moving from proprietary office suites to LibreOffice, which is based on the adoption of an enterprise optimized version of LibreOffice, plus migration consultancy and training sourced from certified professionals who offer value-added solutions and services to match proprietary offerings: www.libreoffice.org/get-help/professional-support/.

Indeed, LibreOffice – thanks to its mature codebase, rich feature set, strong support for open standards, excellent compatibility and LTS options from certified partners – is the ideal solution for businesses that want to regain control of their digital independence, and free themselves from vendor lock-in.

Availability of LibreOffice 7.6.3 Community

LibreOffice 7.6.3 Community is available from: our download page. Minimum requirements for proprietary operating systems are Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 and Apple macOS 10.15. LibreOffice Technology-based products for Android and iOS are listed here: www.libreoffice.org/download/android-and-ios/.

For users who don’t need the latest features, and prefer a version that has undergone more testing and bug fixing, The Document Foundation maintains the LibreOffice 7.5 family, which includes several months of back-ported fixes. The current version is LibreOffice 7.5.8 Community.

The Document Foundation does not provide technical support for users, although they can get it from volunteers on user mailing lists and the Ask LibreOffice website: ask.libreoffice.org

LibreOffice's users, free software advocates and community members can support The Document Foundation with a donation on this page.

The latest Fresh Branch 7.6.4.1 has been released. (07-December-2023)

The latest Still Branch 7.5.9.1 has been released. (07-December-2023)

Release Notes | Fresh & Still Branch Downloads | Blog |

Berlin, December 7, 2023 – LibreOffice 7.6.4 Community and LibreOffice 7.5.9 Community are immediately available from www.libreoffice.org/download for Windows (Intel/AMD/ARM processors), macOS (Apple Silicon and Intel processors), and Linux [1].

LibreOffice 7.6.4 Community is the most advanced version of the office suite, and offers the best in terms of productivity functions and interoperability with Microsoft Office proprietary formats.

LibreOffice 7.5.9 Community is the most thoroughly tested version of the suite, for productivity applications in the enterprise environment, but has now reached the end of its life, so users are invited to plan the upgrade to LibreOffice 7.6.4 Community, which has also been tested and sought after enough for production environments.

For enterprise-class deployments, TDF strongly recommends the LibreOffice Enterprise family of applications from ecosystem partners – for desktop, mobile and cloud – with a large number of dedicated value-added features and other benefits such as SLA (Service Level Agreements): www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-in-business/.
