The Document Foundation (TDF) announces the availability of LibreOffice 5.2.3 “fresh”, the third minor release of the LibreOffice 5.2 family, representing the bleeding edge in term of features and as such targeted at technology enthusiasts, early adopters and power users.
For all other users and especially for enterprise deployments, TDF suggests LibreOffice 5.1.6 “still”, with the backing of professional support by certified people (a list is available at: http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/professional-support/).
People interested in technical details about the release can access the change log here: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.2.3/RC1 (fixed in RC1), https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.2.3/RC2 (fixed in RC2), and https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.2.3/RC3 (fixed in RC3).
Road to LibreOffice 5.3
With the availability of the LibreOffice 5.3 Alpha, the project has entered the road to LibreOffice 5.3, which will be announced at the end of January 2017. The next step in the process will be the release of LibreOffice 5.3 Beta around the end of November, and the announcement of the user interface concept.
Users can start learning about the new exciting features on LibreOffice 5.3 Release Notes page (https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/5.3). The page will be updated for the next month, when the feature set will be frozen for the final quality assurance activity and the preparation of launch materials.
LibreOffice 5.2.3 is immediately available for download from the following link: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/.
