LibreOffice 7.5 Community Now Available
The Document Foundation (TDF) has announced the immediate availability of LibreOffice 7.5 Community, the new major release of the volunteer-supported free office suite for desktop productivity. The latest version is available for download for Windows (Intel/AMD and ARM processors), macOS (Apple Silicon and Intel processors), and Linux.
LibreOffice 7.5 Community comes with a range of significant new features, including major improvements to dark mode support, new application and MIME-type icons, and improvements to the Font Features dialog with several new options. There are also new types added to content controls, which improve the quality of PDF forms, and a new automatic accessibility checker option added to the Tools menu.
One of the most significant new features is the improvement to the interoperability with Microsoft Office. LibreOffice 7.5 provides a large number of improvements and new features targeted at users sharing documents with MS Office or migrating from MS Office. LibreOffice offers the highest level of compatibility in the office suite market segment, with native support for the OpenDocument Format (ODF) and superior support for MS Office files.
LibreOffice 7.5 Community’s new features have been developed by 144 contributors. 63% of code commits are from the 47 developers employed by three companies sitting in TDF’s Advisory Board – Collabora, Red Hat and allotropia – or other organizations, 12% are from 6 developers at The Document Foundation, and the remaining 25% are from 91 individual volunteers.
LibreOffice 7.5 Community is released in 120 different language versions, more than any other free or proprietary software, and can be used in the native language (L1) by over 5.4 billion people worldwide. In addition, over 2.3 billion people speak one of those 120 languages as their second language (L2).
TDF recommends the LibreOffice Enterprise family of applications from ecosystem partners for enterprise-class deployments, with a large number of dedicated value-added features and other benefits such as SLA (Service Level Agreements). LibreOffice Technology-based products are available for major desktop operating systems (Windows, macOS, Linux and Chrome OS), for mobile platforms (Android and iOS), and for the cloud.
The Document Foundation has developed a Migration Protocol to support enterprises moving from proprietary office suites to LibreOffice, which is based on the deployment of an LTS version from the LibreOffice Enterprise family. LibreOffice is the ideal solution for businesses that want to regain control of their data and free themselves from vendor lock-in.
A video summarizing the top new features in LibreOffice 7.5 Community is available on YouTube and PeerTube, and a description of all new features is available in the Release Notes.
