After two release candidates, the final version for LibreOffice 3.5.2 has rolled out. There are no changes since the second RC shipped a month ago, but the developer offers some useful notes for those that haven’t yet adopted this version of the suite.
Windows users still working with versions of LibreOffice older than build 3.4.5 are recommended either to upgrade to 3.4.5 first and then update to the latest release, or to remove the old bits altogether and perform a fresh install of the current revision.
Also on Windows, the presence of OpenOffice on the system, the recommendation goes to remove it, as the same file types are used by LibreOffice too. In case Office 2010 is present, there will be warnings that ODF 1.2 and extended documents written by LibreOffice 3.5 are invalid, but it will still open them.
On Linux it is advisable to use OpenJDK instead of the GCJ Java variant since the latter has known issues with LibreOffice.
