The Document Foundation Announces LibreOffice Updates and Fundraising Accomplishments

Feb 23, 2011

The Document Foundation announced today that LibreOffice 3.3.1 with improved stability and new colorful icons is now available for download. The new icons are based on The Document Foundation branding guidelines, and includes updates to several language versions.

"LibreOffice 3.3 was our very first stable release, and the feedback from users has been extremely positive," said Thorsten Behrens, one of the developers with a seat on the Steering Committee in the press release today. "We have managed to troubleshoot a large number of bugs within a very short time, in order to maintain our enterprising release schedule. There will be another minor release in a month, before our second feature release in early May."

More good news for LibreOffice and The Document Foundation was also announced in the press release—That more more than 40,000 euros have been donated in just over a week and bringing the 50,000 euros goal within sight. The Document Foundation says, "All additional funds collected before the closing date of March 21 will be used for operating expenses such as infrastructure costs and registration of domain names and trademarks, as well as for marketing expenses such as travel funding for TDF representatives speaking at conferences, booth fees for trade shows, and initial financing of merchandising items, DVDs and printed material."
