Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


A quick update: LibreOffice 3.3.1 has just been released, bringing new colored icons and eliminates various problems to improve stability. This is a minor release so that's about everything that's new in this release.

And also related to LibreOffice: the Document Foundation tries to collect donations worth of 50,000 euros required to establish The Document Foundation in Germany. Well, you'll be glad to know that the donations already reached 40,000 euros in just one week so it seems the goal will be achieved since the closing date is March 21st.

Note for Ubuntu users: the LibreOffice PPA currently provides LibreOffice 3.3.0 for Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10 and LibreOffice 3.3.1 RC1 for Ubuntu 11.04. It will probably be updated shortly with the latest LibreOffice 3.3.1 for all three Ubuntu versions. For instructions on installing LibreOffice from the PPA, see our post on LibreOffice Ubuntu PPA
