The Document Foundation has today released a new point upgrade for its office suite. What we have been given this time is LibreOffice 7.4.4, and with this we are approaching a version that you can recommend for production teams. Because this is an update for its "fresh" version or channel, that is, for the one that includes all the news, but it is less tested than the "still" version, which is the one that is recommended when we need something more reliable.
LibreOffice 7.4.4 has arrived fixing a total of 114 bugs, collected in the notes of the RC1 and RC2. TDF does not highlight anything as a special function, and limits itself to saying what this software is, how it works, that there is a Community version for personal use and an Enterprise version for those who need improved support and that to use it you need at least Windows 7 SP1 and macOS 7; They say nothing about Linux, partly because it can be installed on any distribution if its architecture is compatible.
LibreOffice 7.4.4 still not recommended for production teams
For those who prefer reliability, TDF recommends using LibreOffice 7.3.7, which with 7 maintenance updates already has two more than necessary to be considered 100% secure. And it is that among the bugs that are corrected, security patches are also included, and when such high numbers are reached it is because important bugs have been corrected. On the other hand, LibreOffice 7.4.4 has already received 4 point updates, but The Document Foundation will still wait until at least one more to recommend this series for production teams.
LibreOffice 7.4.4 It is now available from your official website for all supported systems. Linux users also have the possibility to install their packages snap, flatpack (both to be updated) and a repository for Ubuntu you should soon receive the new packages.
