Hello Linux Geeksters. LibreOffice 4.0.4 Has Been Offially released. This will be the last 4.0 release, before the arrival of LibreOffice 4.1.
According to the official announcement, LibreOffice 4.0.4 comes with many improvements for the support of proprietary document formats:
“LibreOffice 4.0.4 features many improvements in the area of interoperability with proprietary document formats. This ongoing activity has been instrumental for the choice of LibreOffice by all major migration projects to free software since early 2012, including several central and local governments in Europe and South America.”
LibreOffice 4.1 will be even more interesting, since they will include the long awaited font embedding in documents, and an option that will allow the users to edit pdf files.
