Four weeks after v6.3, The Document Foundation has released LibreOffice 6.3.1, the first maintenance update in this series. The new, more advanced version has arrived together with another new release, in this case LibreOffice 6.2.7, which since the previous version (v6.2.6) is recommended for use in production environments. As maintenance updates, both v6.1.3 and v6.2.7 are here to polish the most popular free office suite available on Linux.
Specifically, LibreOffice 6.3.1 has fixed a total of 82 bugs spread over Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw and Math. On the other hand, a new layer of protection has been introduced for before we try to execute a script or a macro embedded in a document, since The Document Foundation considers this to be dangerous if we do not know exactly what we are doing. This new layer of protection in the form of a warning has also been introduced in LibreOffice v6.2.7.
LibreOffice 6.3.1 fixes a total of 82 bugs
As Italo Vignoli explains:
LibreOffice 6.3.1 considers the presence of any call to a script-like thing to be as dangerous as a macro, and presents the user with a warning dialog about the document attempting to execute a script. Users should never allow the running macros and scripts embedded in documents, unless fully aware of the potential risks associated with the action
LibreOffice 6.3.1 and 6.2.7 are already available from the download web page by The Document Foundation for Windows, Linux and macOS. For Linux, it is available in DEB and RPM versions, but it is also as source code for distributions that do not support these formats. The versions of the official repositories of each distribution will be updated in the next few days to the recommended version or the most advanced, depending on the distribution. The next update will already be a LibreOffice 6.3.2 that will arrive at the end of September / beginning of October.
