LibreOffice 5.3.7 is now available as the latest update for the series, bringing a total of 49 bug fixes for various of the office suite’s components, including Writer, Calc, Draw, Impress, Base, and Math. To see what exactly was changed in this point release, you can study the changelog attached at the end of the article.
With this bugfix release, the LibreOffice 5.3 is on its way to reaching end of life, which will happen officially later this month, on November 26, as The Document Foundation will stop fixing bugs or patching security vulnerabilities. Therefore, it’s better to upgrade to the LibreOffice 5.4 stable series as soon as possible.
The latest stable version of the office suite is now LibreOffice 5.4.2, but the next maintenance release, LibreOffice 5.4.3 is expected to arrive next week. The LibreOffice 5.4 series will reach end of life on June 11, 2018. Meanwhile, work on the next major release, LibreOffice 6.0, continues in the background with the first alpha milestone already available for testing since October 20, as part of the first bug hunting session. LibreOffice 6.0 is expected to hit the streets at the end of January 2018.
