If we had to talk about the important launch of the day, without a doubt that launch would be the one of Ubuntu 19.10 and the rest of the Eoan Ermine family. But for a major company like Canonical to launch a new operating system is no reason for the software world to stop and a few hours ago The Document Foundation has released LibreOffice 6.2.8. It is the eighth and last maintenance release in this series.
Currently, the most up-to-date version and the one with the latest news is LibreOffice 6.3.2. The one that they have updated today is still the recommended version, since the company offers several possibilities among which we have a stable one with everything new and another which has received more fixes which is also a more reliable option. The Document Foundation is usually expected to release six maintenance releases of a series to recommend it for use on production teams, although it appears that the next will not reach 6 until recommended.
LibreOffice 6.2.8 is the EOL version of the series
The Document Foundation advises all users of the office suite to update to improve security. On the other hand, he also tells us to be prepared to update to v6.3.4 of his office suite as soon as it is available, something that will happen in December. As we have mentioned, there will be no more updates for the 6.2 series, so users who want to use the most reliable option will have to wait more than a month and a half to receive a new update.
LibreOffice 6.2.8 is now available for Linux, macOS and Windows since download web page. Linux users have the option of downloading the suite in DEB, RPM or source code versions. On the other hand, we can also install the version Flatpak and the version Snap. We remind you that the most up-to-date version in most of the official repositories of the most popular distributions is v6.2.7.
