Month and a half after earlier version, The Document Foundation just launched LibreOffice 7.1.5 Community, a tag that they started adding starting with the 7.1 series but I think I'll end up removing it to avoid confusion. And it is that from this series, TDF offers an Enterprise option with improved support that runs directly on its own, while the normal one, the one that receives the Community label, is supported by the community.
Labels aside, The Document Foundation has fixed 55 bugs in this release, 20% of them to improve compatibility with Microsoft Office formats DOCX, XLSX, PPTX and the old DOCs. And, although we do not like it, the most popular office suite is still Microsoft's, and all the advances that can be made to improve compatibility will never be enough.
LibreOffice 7.1.5 improves compatibility with Microsoft Office again
Although this is a fifth maintenance update, which means that many bugs have already been fixed, The Document Foundation still does not offer LibreOffice 7.1.5 for production teams. It will probably do so in six weeks, when it releases LO 7.1.6, but right now it mentions that this is still the option for those of us who want all the news; Those who want something more secure and with fewer glitches have LibreOffice 7.0.6 available.
Once again, the project has taken the opportunity to remember that they offer that Enterprise version which not only offers better support, but is also supposed to be able to ask for on-demand features. Without having tried it or knowing anyone who uses this option, I can comment little or nothing about it.
LibreOffice 7.1.5 is available from this afternoon, so we can now download it from the official website. From there, Linux users can download DEB, RPM, and binary packages. In the next few hours it will also be available on Snapcraft and Flathub.
