The Document Foundation Says LibreOfiice 3.4.2 Is Fit For Business

Open source alternative to Microsoft Office alternative LibreOffice is stable enough to be used in enterprise situations according to its makers at The Document Foundation.

The suite of productivity applications which replicate functionality of Microsoft Office has had several major bug fixes and 'can be deployed for production needs by most enterprises' according to a TDF announcement.

The open source outfit says LibreOffice 3.4.2 should be deployed using a support partner which can identify specific requirements and manage migration.

More than 300 contributors have helped build the current version of the software and have added, deleted or modified more than five million lines of code in the process.

"TDF was born with the aim of evolving the OpenOffice.org code to develop a cleaner and leaner free office suite and, after ten months, we are right on track to achieve this objective," said spokesman Bjoern Michaelsen.
