Three weeks after previous delivery, The Document Foundation has released LibreOffice 6.4.2. This is the second maintenance release in this series, the most advanced and the one that includes all the new features, but also more bugs. The company famous for developing the most popular free office suite also offers us another more stable version, which it recommends for production teams because it includes more corrections and fewer errors, but also fewer functions.
LibreOffice 6.4.2 has arrived for correct more than 90 bugs distributed in its suite of applications, among which we have Writer, Calc and Draw. The bugs corrected by this version are listed in this link y this other. As for the version recommended for production teams, The Document Foundation has not updated it, so if you work with LibreOffice and want to be more secure, the version you have available is LibreOffice 6.3.5.
LibreOffice 6.4.2 is not recommended for production teams
The new version is now available for Windows, macOS and Linux. Users of Microsoft and Apple systems can download the new version from their download website that we can access from this link. Linux users also have that option, being able to download DEB, RPM packages or a source code that we can use in more distributions. Another option, perhaps the most recommended, is to wait for the version of the official repositories of our Linux distribution to be updated.
LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 is also available now as flatpak package in Flahub, so if we have support for this type of package enabled, we can install the new version from our software center or by opening the terminal and typing the following command:
flatpak install flathub org.libreoffice.LibreOffice
The next version will already be a LibreOffice 6.4.3 that will arrive in 3-4 weeks and will not be recommended for production teams.
