LibreOffice 3.4.5 Released
The Document Foundation has announced the release of the latest update to their stable branch. Version 3.4.5 is the recommended release for those in environments where stability is the key asset and is the update for those who were deploying 3.3.4. Version 3.3.5 was skipped.
The changelog reads can be a bit boring for the layperson, heavily ladened with fixed this and fixed that with some reverts, workarounds, and changes sprinkled about. I even saw one backport. However, some of the more interesting include:
* fixed missing icons in Index Design dialog in base
* fix hyphenation attributes in libs-core
* fix horizontal scrollbars with KDE oxygen style in libs-gui
* fix the drawing of dotted and dashed borders and several crashes in Calc
Also included in the announcement was this little tidbit:
In 2011, LibreOffice has won InfoWorld's BOSSIE Award 2011 as Best of Open Source Software, and the Open World Forum Experiment Award of Most-Popular Software. The awards are a demonstration of the key improvements brought to the legacy code by a small army of close to 400 TDF developers.
