The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 5.4.1 “fresh” and LibreOffice 5.3.6 “still”

The Document Foundation (TDF) announces LibreOffice 5.4.1, the first minor release of the new LibreOffice 5.4 family, which was announced in early August, and LibreOffice 5.3.6, the sixth release of the mature LibreOffice 5.3 family, which was announced in January 2017.

LibreOffice 5.4.1 represents the bleeding edge in term of features, and as such is targeted at technology enthusiasts and early adopters, while LibreOffice 5.3.6 is targeted at conservative users and enterprise deployments.

TDF suggests deploying LibreOffice 5.3.6 with the backing of certified professionals (updated list available at: http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/professional-support/).

LibreOffice 5.4.1 includes approximately 100 bug and regression fixes, along with document compatibility improvements. Technical details about the release can be found in the change logs here: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.4.1/RC1 (fixed in RC1) and https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.4.1/RC2 (fixed in RC2).

LibreOffice 5.3.6 includes approximately 50 bug and regression fixes. Technical details about the release can be found in the change log here: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.3.6/RC1 (fixed in RC1).

Several companies sitting in TDF’s Advisory Board (http://www.documentfoundation.org/governance/advisory-board/) provide either value-added Long Term Supported versions of LibreOffice or consultancy services for migrations and training, based on best practices distilled by The Document Foundation.
