Just a few days ago we informed you that the top managers of the popular free open source office suite, LibreOffice, we’re launching an awaited new version of their software reaching version 6.0, all with a good number of new features and bug fixes.
However, a few days after its official launch, the new version has received another update, perhaps somewhat earlier than initially expected, but which is responsible, among many other things, for patching an important security flaw detected recently. At the same time that this revision of the suite was launched, users of the same will also be able to have a new stable version of LibreOffice 5.4.5 from this moment, so this version is also ready for download.
It is worth mentioning that this first review carried out on the LibreOffice 6.0 open source project, appeared only a few hours ago through official channels and available for all supported platforms, together with the fifth maintenance update of LibreOffice 5.4, as we have mentioned. In this way, both version 6.0.1 and 5.4.5 of the suite are now available for GNU / Linux, macOS, and Windows, in which several bug fixes have been included.
LibreOffice 6.0.1 fixes a serious security error
In particular, LibreOffice 6.0.1 has received a total of 75 corrections for the most recent failures that have been detected, in addition to a patch for a major security breach. On the other hand, LibreOffice 5.4.5 is updated by correcting 69 errors in several of its components and to improve its stability.
All this does nothing more than demonstrating, once again, the level of response that the top managers of the project have for the errors that are detected in their software, widely used all over the world.
That is why The Document Foundation urges users of both versions of the program to update as soon as possible in order to benefit from these corrections. Similarly, LibreOffice 6.0.1 is recommended for all those more advanced users and technology enthusiasts, while those who seek a higher level of reliability and stability in their daily work with the office suite, for now, opt for LibreOffice 5.4. 5. It is evident that with time, LibreOffice 6.0 will become as stable as the series 5.4, but until then, if this stability is a priority, it is recommended to use the oldest one.
Finally, we will say that LibreOffice 6.0.2 will arrive at the end of this month or the beginning of March, while revision 5.4.6 should be made available to everyone in the last week of March. This series will reach the end of its useful life on June 11, 2018, when LibreOffice 6.0 receives its fifth maintenance update.
