The Document Foundation released a new major version for LibreOffice, which extends the functionality of the suite and brings to the table significant performance improvements as far as loading and saving documents goes.

The fresh release integrates better interoperability with DOCX and RTF document types, which is possible because of a set of improvements and new features. Among these is the possibility to import ink annotations and to attach comments to text ranges. On the same note, native RTF math expressions can now be imported and exported.

Support for importing Microsoft Publisher file has been added, while Visio import filters have been improved.

Starting this revision, you can personalize the look of LibreOffice by using Firefox Themes.
