1LibreOffice 5.4 Open-Source Office Suite Enhances User Experience
LibreOffice in its latest version, 5.4, has added incremental improvements to make its integrated applications easier to use. LibreOffice is the default standard office suite in many mainstream Linux distributions, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE and Ubuntu. It is also available for both Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X. LibreOffice includes the Writer (document), Calc (spreadsheet), Impress (presentation), Base (database) and Draw (drawing) programs as part of the integrated suite. LibreOffice 5.4 was released on July 28 as the second major update this year, following version 5.3’s release on Feb. 1. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the highlights of the new LibreOffice 5.4 release.
