LibreOffice 6.4.2 Release: Adapting Linux, Windows and Mac platforms

The DocumentFoundation has just released LibreOffice 6.4.2 for Linux, Windows, and Mac platforms. Being the second minor release of 6.4 means that it does not introduce new features, but instead focuses on bug fixes to further refine the productivity suite experience. Today’s update fixes issues such as font blur on retina’s display and provides a smoother experience for Mac users, according to the Document Foundation.

As an open source office suite, LibreOffice 6.4.2 represents the most cutting-edge functionality and is therefore not optimized for enterprise-class deployments.

You want to download LibreOffice 6.3.5, which includes reverse porting fixes that last for months, if you want to use a more mature, stable version.

Without a paid license, LibreOffice is clearly a good alternative to the expensive Microsoft Office Productivity Suite.

In addition to home users, LibreOffice is used by millions of computers. For this update, the Documentation Foundation also specifically mentions improvements to document compatibility.

If you migrate from Microsoft Office to LibreOffice, you’ll find that the use of DOCX document formats is no longer a problem.
