LibreOffice 7.3.4 fixes over 80 bugs, and The Document Foundation snaps at Microsoft for working with a discontinued format

LibreOffice 7.3.4

One month and days after previous point update, The Document Foundation just made official the launch of LibreOffice 7.3.4. This is the fourth maintenance update in the 7.3 series, and as such it's here to fix bugs, not add new features. They have taken the opportunity to "scold" Microsoft, saying that their files are still based on an ISO format that was discontinued in 2008, which can create problems for LibreOffice.

According to The Document Foundation, Microsoft files are still based on the proprietary format deprecated by the ISO in 2008, which is artificially complex, and not to the ISO-approved standard. This lack of respect for the ISO standard format can create problems for LibreOffice, and is a major obstacle to seamless interoperability.

LibreOffice 7.3.4 has the latest features; 7.2.7 is more stable

In LibreOffice 7.3.4 more than 80 bugs have been fixed, collected in the RC1 release note and RC2 release note. For everything else, remember that this is the version for those who prefer novelty to stability. Those who need something stable should continue to use what is misnamed the LTS version, a LibreOffice 7.2.7 that not only has the 5 point updates that give it the recommended label, but has also added two more with more corrections, among which we have some security ones.

Interested users, especially those on macOS and Windows, you can now download LibreOffice 7.3.4 from project download page. Linux users can also download DEB and RPM packages from there, but in most cases it is recommended to wait for our Linux distribution to add the new packages to its official repositories. For users of Arch Linux and derivatives, this version is the one labeled "fresh".
