LibreOffice 3.6.0 Released

LibreOffice 3.6.0 has been released with a lot of interesting new features. It took some time to finish this version and it takes up to 4 RC releases before the team decided to release the final version.

Michael Meeks posted on his blog about progress to LibreOffice 3.6.0. He has mentioned this over and over in the past few months and years, but nevertheless, it's something good to share. LibreOffice 3.6.0 is progressing on many areas, including:
  • Extensions registrations
  • Removing more and more dead code inheritted from OpenOffice 
  • Translating German comments into English 
  • Better transition from dmake to make systems
  • More unit tests to prevent regressions
  • More readable code
  • Cross-compiling code
  • Better builds out-of-the-box
