The Document Foundation announced recently that its LibreOffice 6.0 open-source and cross-platform office suite reached almost 1 million downloads since its release last month on January 31, 2018.
That’s terrific news for the Open Source and Free Software community and a major milestone for the acclaimed LibreOffice office suite, which tries to be a free alternative to proprietary solutions like Microsoft Office.
The 1 million downloads mark was reached just two weeks after the release of LibreOffice 6.0, which is the biggest update ever of the open-source office suite adding numerous new features and enhancements over previous versions.
These include a revamped design with new table styles, new gradients, new Elementary icons, and improved Notebookbars, superior interoperability with Microsoft Office documents, support for new import and export file formats, and much more.
Last week, the Document Foundation published the first point release of the LibreOffice 6.0 office suite to improve the security and robustness of the application on all supported platforms. LibreOffice 6.0.1 is now the latest version, but The Document Foundation will be supporting it with more updates during the past few months.
