by Ostatic Staff - Jun. 16, 2011

Speaking of The Document Foundation, Italo Vignoli of the steering committee, today announced the release of LibreOffice 3.3.3. This latest release "fixes several bugs and improves the security of the suite, to specifically address the needs of corporate deployments, where stability is more important than new features."

LibreOffice 3.3.3 is the latest update to the 3.3.0 branch, which is actually identical to the last release candidate, and contains only bug fixes and translation updates. It is aimed at those who are very cautious and wait until something is long stable before upgrading. Version 3.4.0 was released June 1 for those who prefer the latest and greatest. Two more 3.3 releases are planned for August 31 and October 19. 3.4.1 is planned for the end of June.

Some of the fixes in 3.3.3 include:

+ fix for a copy/paste of Writer table formulas
+ fix the positions of imported fields to avoid crashes in Writer
+ fix freezing when importing .pdf on mailmerge
+ fix for lost ticks when importing Word .doc
+ fix segfault when deleting sheets in Calc
+ changed remaining StarOffice and OpenOffice icons to LibreOffice icons
+ updated license information
+ fixed a crash in Spanish thesaurus
