Also: LibreOffice 7.0 Is Already Approaching A Half-Million Downloads

LibreOffice 7.0 approaches half a million downloads in week one

  • LibreOffice 7.0 approaches half a million downloads in week one

    Last week, The Document Foundation released LibreOffice 7.0 with features such as OpenDocument Format 1.3 support and Vulkan GPU-based acceleration. The Document Foundation has now published some stats about the first week of availability, including the fact the new office suite has been downloaded 422,938 times.

    The figure which The Document Foundation has published only represents the stats from the official downloads page so the figure is probably a bit higher as Linux users will download the new version from their respective package managers instead. Only a portion of Linux distributions, however, will have switched to LibreOffice 7.0 because the bigger ones like Ubuntu and Linux Mint are still offering LibreOffice 6.4 in their latest distributions.

    The most popular open-source office suite, LibreOffice, is now available for download, a release that includes numerous improvements across the suite. Although most users won’t notice anything obvious, this release includes numerous file compatibility improvements, which should go a long way to make interoperability between LibreOffice and other suites even better.

    The first major compatibility improvement is that LibreOffice includes support for ODF 1.3. Along with this update comes digital signatures for documents and OpenPGP-based encryption of XML documents.

  • POSIX Compliance Explained: Does It Even Matter In 2020

    Like with the Unix Philosphy, POSIX compliance tends to get simplified far more than it really needs to which sort of makes it seem less important than it really is, so today I thought it would be a good idea to take the time to explain what it is and where it came from and why it was important in the early days of Unix and even now in the days of Linux and various BSD variants.
