The LibreOffice project, which was founded in 2010, is a community-driven fork of OpenOffice.org (OOo). LibreOffice benefits from a more open governance model and a more inclusive community than OOo, characteristics that have attracted a significant number of new contributors to the project and have led to increased developer engagement. The rapid growth of the developer community and the lower barrier to participation have allowed LibreOffice to advance at a fast pace.
One of the major new features introduced in LibreOffice 3.5 is a new grammar checking tool. The feature is built with Lightproof, a language-neutral grammatical analysis tool that is implemented in Python and has a sophisticated regex-based rule system. LibreOffice Writer also got a typographical boost in 3.5 from improvements to the Linux Libertine font, which now supports additional features like true small caps.
LibreOffice Calc, the suite’s spreadsheet application, can now support up to 10,000 sheets and offers better performance when adding many sheets at once. Line smoothing in charts has also been improved and now conforms with version 1.2 of the ODF standard. Calc has gained improved support for conditional formatting, the functionality that allows cell formatting to be tied to formula results and other conditions. Impress, the presentation application, also gained a number of new features, including better handling of smart art from PowerPoint documents.
LibreOffice is the free power-packed Open Source personal productivity suite for Windows, Macintosh and Linux, that gives you six feature-rich applications for all your document production and data processing needs.
Writer is the word processor inside LibreOffice. Use it for everything, from dashing off a quick letter to producing an entire book with tables of contents, embedded illustrations, bibliographies and diagrams.
Calc tames your numbers and helps with difficult decisions when you’re weighing the alternatives.
Impress is the fastest and easiest way to create effective multimedia presentations.
Draw lets you build diagrams and sketches from scratch. A picture is worth a thousand words, so why not try something simple with box and line diagrams?
Base is the database front-end of the LibreOffice suite.
Math is a simple equation editor that lets you lay-out and display your mathematical, chemical, electrical or scientific equations quickly in standard written notation.
