Collabora Online Development Edition 6.4 Office Suite Gets a Fresh Look, Many Improvements

Filed under
Software

Coming three months after version 4.2, CODE (Collabora Online Development Edition) 6.4 is a major release that adds many great features, including a new, modern look with the NotebookBar, which not only saves sp`ace, but it also makes the interface easier to use and intuitive, especially for those familiar with the MS Office suite.

The NotebookBar is set as default in this release and looks great with all core components, including Writer, Calc, and Impress. However, if users want to switch back to the classic interface, which won’t go away anytime soon, they can do that very easily by selecting ‘classic’ for the user_interface key in the loolwsd.xml file.

    Thrilled to see the CODE 6.4 release - a vast amount of hard work from the team. Really good to see the bits I helped Dennis do around the Canvas re-write for split-panes, and the move away from leaflet and towards purer canvas rendering there pushed out; tons more to do there, but a great cleanup. Now for more tweaking, profiling, iteration.

In other words, you are utilizing a GUI-based approach to browse the web. However, back in the days, people used the terminal to fetch resources and browse the web because everything was mostly text-based information. Even though you cannot get every information from a terminal now, you can still try the command line browsers for some text-based information and open a web page from the Linux terminal. Not just limited to that, but if you are accessing a remote server or stuck in a terminal without a GUI, a terminal web browser can prove to be useful as well. So, in this article, I will be mentioning some terminal based web browsers that you can try on Linux. Read more
