LibreOffice 3.3 Released, Download Candidates Available for Windows, Mac and Linux


LibreOffice 3.3 stable is released finally with enormous amount of bug fixes and other major improvements. OpenOffice has already become memory and LibreOffice is the new name for revolution. As Mark Shuttleworth himself stated before, LibreOffice is already a default in ongoing Ubuntu Natty release cycle. Slowly but surely, things are starting to look good for LibreOffice. Community involvement is also picking up. LibreOffice UI mockups we featured here before are good examples.

If you are using Ubuntu, you can install LibreOffice in Ubuntu via PPA also, which is the easiest and safest way to do it. Don't forget to remove OpenOffice completely before doing it. LibreOffice PPA does not have this latest LibreOffice 3.3 version available yet though, but will be added soon. Lets just hope that, LibreOffice will give a real run for its money to its closed source counterpart, Microsoft Office.
