Cambridge, United Kingdom – December 21, 2017 – Collabora Productivity, the driving force behind putting LibreOffice in the Cloud, is excited to announce the release of CODE 3.0 which, for the very first time brings full-feature editing dialogs, familiar from the PC LibreOffice version to the browser. Developers and home users are encouraged to update, try it out and get involved with the latest developments – however for enterprise production users are recommended to continue to use Collabora Online 2.1.5 or wait for the next release – due soon.

code_v3_calc_autofilterCODE is the LibreOffice Online solution with the latest developments, perfect for home users that want to integrate their own online Office Suite with their preferred File Share and Sync solution. It allows editing of richly formatted documents directly from a web browser, with excellent support for all popular office file formats, including text documents (docx, doc, odt,…), spreadsheets (xlsx, xls, ods,…) and presentations (pptx, ppt, odp,…). The purpose of CODE is to give interested developers from any field an easy way to get early access to the very latest feature additions and updates to LibreOffice Online, in order to enable them to develop, test to make it better, and contribute back to LibreOffice. For enterprises that look for a scalable, commercially supported version with Long Term Support, signed security updates and a SLA, Collabora Productivity provides Collabora Online.

Last year, after a lot of work, Collabora Productivity included the collaborative editing to CODE. Now, another milestone has been reached with the release of CODE 3.0, offering the initial full-feature LibreOffice dialogs to be used in the browser. The latest version brings the richness and complexity of eg. complex writer numbering, or powerful spreadsheet filtering. This sharing of user experience with LibreOffice users will allow new UI features to debut simultaneously in both online and PC clients, driving improvement in both of them.

Collabora Productivity has been working hard to make it easy for people to get and use Collabora Online by partnering and integrating with all sorts of open source file syncing solutions from ownCloud and Nextcloud to pydio, seafile, EGroupware and many others. CODE has two million docker image downloads, and now features a very easy way to install from the Univention app-store.

The goal of CODE is to get as many people as possible to try it out and get back control of their own online documents.
