LibreOffice running on Raspberry Pi is not actually news, the developers announced in December 2012 that LibreOffice works on RasPi.
This is what Bjoern Michaelsen, a Canonical Developer said about the topic:
“The availability of LibreOffice, the best free office suite ever, on the Raspberry Pi – the most affordable PC ever, targeted to hardware and software enthusiasts, and schools – is extremely important for The Document Foundation, because it will contribute to the growth of the brand awareness in key market segments”
How to install LibreOffice on Raspbian:
To install all the apps associated with LibreOffice, just do:
$ sudo apt-get install libreoffice
But because RasPi has limited memory you can install only the programs you need, from the default repositories.
Install Word Processor on Raspbian:
$ sudo apt-get install libreoffice-writer
Install Spreadsheet on Raspbian:
$ sudo apt-get install libreoffice-calc
Install Presentation on Raspbian:

As you may know, Word Processor is the equivalent of Microsoft Word, Spreadsheet is like Microsoft Excel and Presentation is a PowerPoint substitute.
