Two weeks ago now, The Document Foundation released the fourth maintenance update of the v7.4 of your office suite to fix more than 100 bugs. Today the company announced the launch of LibreOffice 7.4.5, and its list of novelties is not that extensive nor is it close to being so. In fact, and if I'm not mistaken, they have released it to correct a single bug, but a very important one because it was affecting many users.
The lists of news of the new versions of LibreOffice are usually available in articles of the first and second RC of each version, but today they have only provided this from LibreOffice 7.4.5-RC1. In it we can read that the only change is a fixed bug that says "CRASH: when clicking the button in the header or footer." "Crash" is the word they use in English to refer to erratic behavior such as a unexpected closure or a lock.
LibreOffice 7.4.5… already recommended for production teams?
The Document Foundation typically releases five maintenance updates before recommending a new series for production equipment. On the LibreOffice download page, v7.4.5 already appears, but also v7.3.7, and next to them the explanations that one is for those who want all the news beforehand and the other for those who prefer stability. Still, in the release note they say that "All LibreOffice users are encouraged to update their installations to LibreOffice 7.4.5, as older versions have reached the end of their life cycle.«. Those who want stability can wait a little longer, but knowing that the 7.3 series and earlier will no longer receive patches of any kind.
LibreOffice 7.4.5 can now be downloaded for all supported systems from its official website. It will soon appear in the official repositories of some Linux distributions, and in your own for Ubuntu-based distributions.
