The Document Foundation announced today the availability of the second point release in the latest LibreOffice 6.1 open-source and cross-platform office suite series, LibreOffice 6.1.2.
Coming only two weeks after the release of the first maintenance update, LibreOffice 6.1.1, the LibreOffice 6.1.2 point release is here to address 70 bugs discovered by the development team or reported by users across several components of the office suite. The release was made during the LibreOffice Conference 2018 that takes place these days in Tirana, Albania, and the full changelog is available here.
"The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 6.1.2, the second minor release of the LibreOffice 6.1 family, targeted at early adopters, technology enthusiasts, and power users," said Italo Vignoli in today's announcement. "The new release was launched during the LibreOffice Conference 2018, in Tirana, the capital city of Albania. LibreOffice 6.1.2 provides around 70 bug and regression fixes over the previous version."
LibreOffice 6.1.3 expected to land at the end of October 2018
All users of the LibreOffice 6.1 office suite series are urged to update their installations to the LibreOffice 6.1.2 point release. However, The Document Foundation still recommends the LibreOffice 6.1 series for early adopters and power users, as enterprise users will have to use the more stable and well-tested LibreOffice 6.0 series, which will reach end of life on November 26, 2018.
LibreOffice 6.0 will get one more point release until its end of life, LibreOffice 6.0.7, which is expected to hit the streets at the end of October 2018 along with the third LibreOffice 6.1 point release, LibreOffice 6.1.3. By that time, The Document Foundation will start recommending the LibreOffice 6.1 series to enterprise users as well. LibreOffice 6.1 reached end of life on May 29, 2019.
