LibreOffice 4.0.2 Fixes Small Bugs and Glitches

libreofficeThe Document Foundation today announced the release of LibreOffice 4.0.2 glitch-fix update. How stable is an app that gets "glitch updates?" ...just a few glitches to fix. Well, let's look at the changelogs and see.

Of course, you get the numerous importing bugs fixed, but one interesting fix right at the top is for a resource leak. I'm having a hard time understanding what that's all about, but you can check out what's there. There seems to be quite a bit of formating, rendering, displaying, and positioning of elements and the like addressed. A couple of obscure crashes were fixed and one hang when "exporting a particular .ods to .xlsx" was closed. Yep, all in all a pretty boring coupla lists, which is a good thing.

    My worklife word processing is purely MS Word. I have a personal project that I like to work on at work and at home. Unfortunately Liobre Office turns my Word files into a formatting mess, and leaves it that way when I open the document again in Word. Is this a Microsoft problem or a Libre Office problem. Are there any open office suites that work better with Word>
