LibreOffice 4.3.1 Released [Update]

libreoffice

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, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math and Base. Support and documentation is free from a large, dedicated community of users, contributors and developers. You, too, can also get involved!

Features:

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. The while-you-type auto-completion, auto-formatting and automatic spelling checking make difficult tasks easy (but are easy to disable if you prefer). Writer is powerful enough to tackle desktop publishing tasks such as creating multi-column newsletters and brochures. The only limit is your imagination.

Calc tames your numbers and helps with difficult decisions when you're weighing the alternatives. Analyze your data with Calc and then use it to present your final output. Charts and analysis tools help bring transparency to your conclusions. A fully-integrated help system makes easier work of entering complex formulas. Add data from external databases such as SQL or Oracle, then sort and filter them to produce statistical analyses. Use the graphing functions to display large number of 2D and 3D graphics from 13 categories, including line, area, bar, pie, X-Y, and net - with the dozens of variations available, you're sure to find one that suits your project.

Impress is the fastest and easiest way to create effective multimedia presentations. Stunning animation and sensational special effects help you convince your audience. Create presentations that look even more professional than the standard presentations you commonly see at work. Get your collegues' and bosses' attention by creating something a little bit different.

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? Or else go further and easily build dynamic 3D illustrations and special effects. It's as simple or as powerful as you want it to be.

Base is the database front-end of the LibreOffice suite. With Base, you can seamlessly integrate into your existing database structures. Based on imported and linked tables and queries from MySQL, PostgreSQL or Microsoft Access and many other data sources, you can build powerful databases containing forms, reports, views and queries. Full integration is possible with the in-built HSQL database.

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. Even the most-complex calculations can be understandable when displayed correctly. E=mc2.

LibreOffice also comes configured with a PDF file creator, meaning you can distribute documents that you're sure can be opened and read by users of almost any computing device or operating system.

Great Office suite. Has always ran flawlessly.

Off-topic : Neowin's new design is beautiful, but a slight problem with "Neowin News Feed for: Software" RSS feed (http://www.neowin.net/news/rss/software) : the icons (software images rather) are so wide that they break the feed's page unless I have that page set to screen width. Is it possible to have those images smaller ? As they were before was just fine IMO. Thanks, and sorry for the off-topic incursion.

now here i really would expect at least a link to the linux version as well, it has also 4.3.1

especially, because libreoffice, together with linux is intended to be an alternative to the windows office combo.

Why should there be, there is not a link to OS X either. . .Remember this is "Neowin" not NeoLinux, or NeoApple.

for me software news should include any links, no matter for what OS. i can imagine a few linux users reading this and would conclude that there is no linux version out there, while it is.
it should also include links to the osx version as well ofc. with your "logic", the mac and linux forums on neowin would also be needed to close. then whats next? no android news/devices allowed anymore just the holy cow microsoft mobile? next stop: only ms produced hardware... so that reduces it to mouse and keyboards right? :D

Stop with the arguing. Neowin can post whatever download links they want, even if it's just Windows links.

this is not arguing but my opinion and - wonder wonder - is just as legitimate as yours and honestly seeing my record on neowin and yours, probably even stronger based.
