LibreOffice 7.3

In early January, The Document Foundation launched the v7.2.5 of your office suite. Although it was already the fifth point update of the 7.2 series, there was still one thing missing to recommend that update for production teams: something that would be released has arrived this afternoon. And today they have announced a LibreOffice 7.3 that introduces novelties, as well as improvements that are repeated in each release: they have taken the opportunity to improve compatibility with Microsoft Office, unfortunately the most used office software in the world.

LibreOffice 7.3 is a new Community version, which has long since become the version for the general public. At the same time they launch the Enterprise version, with which you receive direct support from The Document Foundation team and, if necessary, you can request à la carte functions.
