The Document Foundation announces that the release of the sixth update version for LibreOffice 4.1.x branch has been released on all platforms, including Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X.
All the supported platforms have received this new update, but this is a maintenance build that’s mostly about bug fixes, which means that it fits perfectly in what has been made available so far, with no major surprises.
“LibreOffice 4.1.6 is the last release of the LibreOffice 4.1 family, targeted to large deployments in enterprises and public administrations, which should always be supported by TDF certified developers. Today, we users can choose between LibreOffice 4.2.3 Fresh, targeted to early adopters and technology enthusiasts, and LibreOffice 4.1.6 Stable targeted to enterprise deployments and conservative users,” said Florian Effenberger, TDF executive director.
In total, over 80 bugs and regressions have been addressed by this update, so if you are a heavy user of this particular LibreOffice branch, you might want to update. It will probably take a couple of days for the new version to reach all the repositories out there.
Keep in mind that you can also compile the new version by yourself, but this is a large software and things are bound to go wrong unless you really know what you are doing.
