Canonical Joins Document Foundation Advisory Board

Jul 27, 2016

The upcoming release of LibreOffice will be available as a snap package

Canonical, the parent company of Ubuntu, has joined the advisory board of The Document Foundation (TDF). TDF is the organization that manages and develops the free and open source office suite LibreOffice.

“We are extremely pleased to become a member of the LibreOffice Project Advisory Board and having the opportunity to provide our guidance and insights to help improve LibreOffice for users around the world,” said Will Cooke, Desktop Engineering Manager for Canonical.

The Advisory Board represents the sponsors of TDF and offers advice, guidance, and proposals to the Board of Directors.

LibreOffice has been the default office suite on Ubuntu since its early days. The upcoming release of LibreOffice 5.2 will be one of the first applications to be available through the Canonical-sponsored Snappy package management system.
