LibreOffice 3.5 Released

LibreOffice is ultimately the best free open-source office suite out there since the project was forked from OpenOffice. Many Linux distros now come with LibreOffice installed by default. So, onto today's topic.

LibreOffice 3.5 has been released. It's the third major release by the LibreOffice team and it packs some nice new features to the existing Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw and Base. An online update checker (which it really needed) also makes its debut with this release.

The Document Foundation has created a simple illustration that presents the many new features from this release.
You can read about all the new features and bug fixes here.

LibreOffice 3.5 will comre pre-installed in Ubuntu 12.04 and equivalent Linux distros. Users of current and previous versions can download straight from the LibreOffice website.

However, if you like the PPA-style updating, it will take a few more days for an update to be available.
