A few weeks ago we have posted about the major release of LibreOffice version 4.2.0 which brought many improvements to each application of LibreOffice suite, a polished new start screen and a new set of icons to decrease the distractions during typing. Check earlier post of LibreOffice 4.2.0 Here.
LibreOffice 4.2.1 Release Notes
- This release is bit-for-bit identical to the 4.2.1 Release Candidate 1, so you don’t need to download or reinstall if you have that version already.
- Mac version doesn’t bundle the mediawiki extension
- The distribution for Windows is an international build, so you can choose the user interface language that you prefer. Help content is available via an online service, or alternatively as a separate install.
- Our Windows binaries are digitally signed by The Document Foundation.
- For Windows users that have OpenOffice.org installed, we advise uninstalling that beforehand, because it registers the same file type associations.
- If you run Linux, the GCJ Java variant has known issues with LibreOffice, we advise to e.g. use OpenJDK instead.
- Some menu entries have changed or added. If you miss something, that may be due to the use of customised menu settings from your previous LibreOffice installation.
- This version still contains a few annoying bugs, as listed here.
You can download the DEB packages for Debian “Ubuntu, Linux Mint” based Linux operating system or the RPM packages for Fedora, CentOS, Suse and Mandriva from the offical Download page, and follow the installation instructions for Linux distributions from the help page “Installation of LibreOffice on Linux”. Make sure you have downloaded the suitable packages for your operating system and CPU architecture.
