Making sense of the new features in LibreOffice 4.1

Filed under
LibO

As the LibreOffice project moves forward with the development on its 4.x branches we sometimes get the feedback that while new features are documented in detail as well as in a summarized fashion (on the wiki and on the website), it is not easy to understand what’s unique about the features in LibreOffice. We often hear things like “but their interface is outdated!” or people asking us to compare LibreOffice and Apache OpenOffice.

This calls for clarification and some work by the marketing team, even though we know that engaging in a work of marketing product’s features and product’s positionning is just out of place for a project like LibreOffice which is, after all, about delivering value to the community and by the community.

To start with I will point to the -not yet definitive- release notes of LibreOffice 4.1 in its first beta version.
