LibreOffice 4.3.2, the second minor update to the 4.3.x release series, has been made available for immediate download.
Announcing its availability ahead of the project’s fourth birthday on Sunday, The Document Foundation say the majority of fixes — more than 80 in total — “…focus on interoperability issues when reading or writing Microsoft Office DOCX, XLSX and PPTX files.”
As boring as “interoperability” may read it is an important and integral feature of any office suite.
Robust file compatibility helps persuade and wean users, businesses and governments off of proprietary suites like Microsoft Office software, and onto open-source alternatives without impacting productivity.
