LibreOffice 7.3.1

It's been almost exactly a month since The Document Foundation He launched a major upgrade to your office suite. Among its novelties we had that it was possible to generate a barcode from one address, and another that they always mention and will always mention, which improved compatibility with Microsoft Office. It is something that they will do in all the versions that they release, and it is something necessary because, no matter how hard you try, the compatibility will never be 100% perfect. This afternoon, TDF has launched LibreOffice 7.3.1, which is the first maintenance update in the 7.3 series.

As for the news, and taking into account that it is a point version, do not expect major changes. yes it is known that have fixed a total of 98 bugs, between which is a regression in Calc and some other bug that caused the project's spreadsheet program to quit unexpectedly or crash.

LibreOffice 7.3.1 is not recommended for production computers

As we read in the release note, the corrected bugs can be seen in this link, this other and also here!; are the links corresponding to RC1, RC2 and RC3 respectively. 98 are many bugs fixed, but not enough. Or well, the number does not matter, since they will not change their philosophy or their recommendations.

The Document Foundation has at least two versions of its office suite available. The newest, currently LibreOffice 7.3.1, is for those who want all the news as soon as possible. It also offers another version that is not LTS, but more conservative.

    Hi, let's see if version 7.3.1 on Windows 7 64 Bit now allows me to start LibreOffice Calc documents without the application crashing. Since I'm still using 7.0.3.1 on my father's PC because LibreOffice for Windows hasn't worked for me from the higher version onwards, since it constantly crashes.

    The only thing that seems strange to me at this point, is the fact that LibreOffice is not updated directly, that is, without using any "deb" or "rpm" packages, it simply looses its updated files one by one on at least 3 main servers, and go downloading everything, while the user works once everything is downloaded, indicate to the user that he can install the update.

    That is if making a backup of the current version in use, in case of failures, return to the previous version if it does not start correctly or if the user requests to return to the previous version.

    Obviously having among the options "Download update but notify me when I can install it" or something like that.
