Today we release two major upgrades for OS X users: LibreOffice Vanilla, the latest LibreOffice from the Document Foundation for early adopters, packaged by Collabora, hits version 5.0. At the same time LibreOffice-from-Collabora, our extra-stable productivity suite for professionals and enterprise users, reaches version 4.4.
Released last month, LibreOffice 5 Vanilla brings an overhauled user interface, brand new icon set, and, especially relevant for Mac owners: improved support for high resolution (HiDPI) Retina displays, among many other improvements.
Of these, 18 new features were contributed by Collabora Engineers, including improved interoperability with OOXML and RTF documents, preview of styles and formatting in the sidebar, and all-new support for customisable shortcodes.
Following hot the heels of last week’s general release, LibreOffice-from-Collabora 4.4 is now available via the Mac App Store for $10. Combining rigorously tested features from LibreOffice 4.4 with new features developed by Collabora, this release offers new compatibility, deployment management, and document integrity features. Read more about our latest enterprise release in the release announcement.
