The Document Foundation (TDF) announces LibreOffice 5.4.4, the fourth minor release of LibreOffice 5.4 family, one month before the major announcement of LibreOffice 6.0. Although it still represents the bleeding edge in term of features, conservative users and enterprises can start the update process from their current LibreOffice 5.3 implementation.
TDF suggests to conservative users and enterprises to deploy LibreOffice with the backing of certified developers, migrators and trainers (an updated list is available at https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/professional-support/). This is extremely important for the growth of the LibreOffice ecosystem.
LibreOffice 5.4.4 includes over 80 bug and regression fixes. Technical details about the release can be found in the change logs: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.4.4/RC1 (fixed in RC1) and https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.4.4/RC2 (fixed in RC2).
LibreOffice 5.4.4 is immediately available for download at the following link: https://www.libreoffice.org/download/download/.
LibreOffice users, free software advocates and community members can support The Document Foundation with a donation at https://www.libreoffice.org/donate/. Donations help TDF to maintain its infrastructure, share knowledge, and fund the presence of volunteers at events like FOSDEM, where they can meet with free software advocates coming from all of Europe.
Several companies sitting in TDF’s Advisory Board (https://www.documentfoundation.org/governance/advisory-board/) provide either value-added LTS versions of LibreOffice or consultancy services for migrations and training, based on best practices distilled by The Document Foundation.
