LibreOffice 4.1.1 Released Fixing 101 Bugs

Filed under
LibO

Here we go again with another LibreOffice update, this time to the 4.1 branch released last month. LibreOffice 4.1.1 was announced today in Berlin with "a large number of improved interoperability features with proprietary and legacy file formats." This branch is developed for those wishing the latest in features, "for enterprise adoptions, though, The Document Foundation suggests LibreOffice 4.0.5, backed by certified professionals."

Many of the updates this cycle were for importing and exporting bugs. One interesting bug fixed was fdo#67388, in which files in .deb packages weren't owned by root:root. Another fixed was fdo#67235 where the Timefield is limited automatically to max. 00:00:01 in Base.

Yes, it still helps to have a Computer Science degree, but the lack of one is often no drawback. Read more
