The Document Foundation [http://www.documentfoundation.org/] , the
organization behind the development of LibreOffice, has announced
This is the last release before 4.1 branch and brings minor updates.
One of the most interesting feature of the upcoming release is that
users will be able to open PDF files and edit them.
According to the press statement, "LibreOffice 4.0.4 features many
improvements in the area of interoperability with proprietary document
formats. This ongoing activity has been instrumental for the choice of
LibreOffice by all major migration projects to free software since
early 2012, including several central and local governments in Europe
and South America."
The next major release 4.1 will introduce many new and exciting
features, including the long awaited font embedding in documents,
which is pushing forward the Open Document Format.
Those of you who wonder when will LO offer a brand new UI, just keep
in mind that the team is cleaning up the huge pile of ‘dead’ code it
inherited from stagnant OpenOffice. Quite a lot of work is going on
under the hood which may not be visible to an average user.
