LibreOffice 6.3.4 arrives to make more than 120 corrections

LibreOffice 6.3.4

About six weeks ago, The Document Foundation released v6.3.3 of your office suite. Today, two weeks before the Christmas holidays, the company has launched LibreOffice 6.3.4, the fourth maintenance release in this series already here primarily to fix bugs. At the time of writing these lines there is no release note for this specific version, but there is a web page available where they tell us about all the what's new in v6.3 of the suite.

Altogether LibreOffice 6.3.4 includes more than 120 changes, the vast majority of them intended to polish Writer, Calc, Draw, Impress and Math. So this is a major release, as long as we understand as "important" that they have made the software more reliable. Among the new features in this version we have corrections for the signatures removed from all macros when creating a new document from a template and incorrectly merged cells in Writer tables when working with documents in DOCX formats.

LibreOffice 6.3.4 is not the recommended version yet

As any LibreOffice user will already know, The Document Foundation offers several alternatives to its suite: LibreOffice 6.3.4 is the most up-to-date, which means that it is the one that includes all the new features. This also means that it is less polished than a v6.2.8 which, after 8 maintenance releases and without the latest less tested features, is more reliable. Therefore, The Document Foundation continues recommending v6.2.8 on production machines.

LibreOffice 6.3.4 is now available for Windows, macOS, Linux and other operating systems from official download website. Linux users can download the new version in DEB packages (Debian / Ubuntu), RPM (Red Hat) and in binaries. To install the new version from the official repositories we will still have to wait a few days, or weeks if our Linux distribution uses the version recommended for production teams.

    It is an excellent suite. I have been using it for more than 4 years as a replacement for Microsoft Office with very good results. It is ideal for all those routine jobs that are carried out daily.
    I recommend it anyway.

    A decade ago it surpassed the functionality of the MS Office suite and was a bulwark to move into the free world, today it is still stagnant and easily surpassed by two other office suites.

    Pivot tables are still one of the main reasons why I can't switch to LO. And the loss of compatibility with MSO that involves changes (small, but changes after all) that modify the documents.
