LibreOffice Rolls Out the Updates, Latest 3.3.2

Filed under
LibO

Unlike OpenOffice.org of yore, LibreOffice developers have been pumping out the updates at a rapid pace. Since the inaugural release two months ago, LibreOffice has seen two minor version updates as well as associated developmental releases. The latest, LibreOffice 3.3.2, was released just a couple of days ago.

LibreOffice 3.3, the fork of OpenOffice.org 3.x, was released on January 25 to a jubilant reception. It built upon the years of work that made OpenOffice.org an excellent office suite. Version 3.3 brought nice improvements over OpenOffice.org.

Version 3.3.1 was released on February 23 and brought some bug fixes, new icons, and extra language additions. LibreOffice 3.3.2 was released March 22. This release was primarily a stabilizing update bringing further bug fixes and code clean-ups.

LibreOffice

When are they going to make it do actual updates instead of requiring a full 214M download for a v0.0.2 point release patch?

LibreOffice is nice

Got Libreoffice 3.3.2 on my PCLinuxOS box a couple of days ago. It runs so much better than Open Office.

Unix and Personal Computers: Reinterpreting the Origins of Linux

So, to sum up: What Linus Torvalds, along with plenty of other hackers in the 1980s and early 1990s, wanted was a Unix-like operating system that was free to use on the affordable personal computers they owned. Access to source code was not the issue, because that was already available—through platforms such as Minix or, if they really had cash to shell out, by obtaining a source license for AT&T Unix. Therefore, the notion that early Linux programmers were motivated primarily by the ideology that software source code should be open because that is a better way to write it, or because it is simply the right thing to do, is false.
