The Open Office fork Office suite, Libre Office has hit its first stable release today. You can download Libre office for free from http://www.libreoffice.org/download. You can get installer for Windows, Linux( deb, rpm, and tarball) and Mac.
Libre Office is a product from the Document Foundation, backed by several Open Source giants like Novell, Canonical, Google, GNOME and the FSF. It came into existence as an alternative to Open Office after Sun Microsystems got taken over by Oracle.
The release brings in several new features and fixes :
- Import SVG graphics into Draw and edit them interactively. SVG is an XML based image format that lets you animate actively. This makes Draw an almost perfect designer tool.
- Spreadsheets in Calc now features 1million rows.
- Better import facility from MS Office formats and other Rich Text Formats without loss in data.
- New Fonts and Palette colors.
- Panel quickstarter for Unix builds.
- A templates repository.
