LibreOffice Pushes Back, Releases 3.6.3

Filed under

Yesterday Rob Weir said he didn't believe the LibreOffice user numbers. Apparently, he's been accusing The Document Foundation of discouraging contributions to OpenOffice as well. The folks at TDF are not happy and some pushed right back today. In related news, LibreOffice 3.6.3 was announced today too.

Boy oh boy, it seems the rivalry between the two popular office suites is heating up. After Weir's blog post yesterday questioning the LibreOffice download numbers given in a recent announcement, Italo Vignoli became angry according to one post today. After regaining his composure he said Weir's recent words are "the backlash of a scared man."
