LibreOffice 4.1.1 Released Fixing 101 Bugs

Filed under
LibO

Here we go again with another LibreOffice update, this time to the 4.1 branch released last month. LibreOffice 4.1.1 was announced today in Berlin with "a large number of improved interoperability features with proprietary and legacy file formats." This branch is developed for those wishing the latest in features, "for enterprise adoptions, though, The Document Foundation suggests LibreOffice 4.0.5, backed by certified professionals."

Many of the updates this cycle were for importing and exporting bugs. One interesting bug fixed was fdo#67388, in which files in .deb packages weren't owned by root:root. Another fixed was fdo#67235 where the Timefield is limited automatically to max. 00:00:01 in Base.

Make Your Mark on the World With Linux

Linux and FOSS have already changed the world, and we're just at the beginning. This is a great time to learn to be a maker, in contrast to being a mere consumer. Clicking buttons on a smartphone is not being tech-savvy; hacking and building the phone is. Some people give Make Magazine the credit for launching the Maker Movement. Whether they launched it or just gave it a name, it is a real phenomenon, a natural evolution of do-it-yourselfers, inventors, and hackers in every generation. Remember Popular Mechanics, Popular Science, Hands-On (for Shopsmith projects), photography magazines, woodworking magazines, electronics...remember Heathkit? Remember when Radio Shack was still an electronics store? How about Edmund Scientific? That is still a wonderful playground of anatomical models, microscopes, telescopes, dinosaurs, prisms, lenses, chemistry sets, lasers, geology stuff, and tons more. All of these still exist, and have moved online like everything else. It's a feast of riches, plus we have all the cool new stuff that Make Magazine covers. This is absolutely the best time to be a curious tech adventurer. Read more
