Berlin, September 3, 2020 – LibreOffice 7.0.1, the first minor release
of the LibreOffice 7.0 family, targeted at technology enthusiasts and
power users, is now available for download from
https://www.libreoffice.org/download/. LibreOffice 7.0.1 includes around
80 bug fixes and improvements to document compatibility.
The most significant new features of the LibreOffice 7.0 family are:
support for OpenDocument Format (ODF) 1.3; Skia graphics engine and
Vulkan GPU-based acceleration for better performance; and carefully
improved compatibility with DOCX, XLSX and PPTX files.
LibreOffice offers the highest level of compatibility in the office
suite arena, starting from native support for the OpenDocument Format
(ODF) – with better security and interoperability features – to wide
support for proprietary formats.
LibreOffice 7.0.1 represents the bleeding edge in term of features for
open source office suites. Users wanting the robustness of a more mature
version optimized for enterprise class deployments can still download
For enterprise class deployments, TDF strongly recommends sourcing
LibreOffice from one of the ecosystem partners, to get long-term
supported releases, dedicated assistance, custom new features and other
benefits, including SLAs (Service Level Agreements):
Support for migrations and training should be sourced from certified
professionals who provide value-added services which extend the reach of
the community to the corporate world. Also, the work done by ecosystem
partners flows back into the LibreOffice project, and this represents an
advantage for everyone.
LibreOffice – thanks to its mature codebase, rich feature set, support
for open standards, excellent compatibility and long-term support
options – represents the ideal solution for businesses that want to
regain or keep control of their data and free themselves from vendor
