You can find out what's new, from the technical viewpoint, about this suite here . Let's see...it comes with a nice sidebar...it has better OOXML support (I don't care about that as I use ODF), and it even added textboxes. Well, texboxes are something I never needed and I actually find them annoying, but others may think they're handy... Still, I am more interested in knowing if this new release could meet my needs.
|Japanese input support! Wow! I thought I'd never see it again on this old system!|
What was next? Customization might be another aspect to check...
I don't remember this feature on LO 4.3... Now you have a handy theme selector to change the appearance of the office suite! I entered "cat" and hit the "search" button...and sure enough, I got several matching themes. That was easy! At the end, I chose a theme I happen to like quite a lot! :P
I still need to test Impress, Calc, and the other applications. But I have to install first LibreOffice 4.4 on my laptop. After all, that is the device in which I use Impress.
But while I do that, why not giving a little donation to The Document Foundation?
I hope all those who like LibreOffice made a donation, big or small, to this great project.
