The next significant release of LibreOffice is coming at the end of January 2014 and some of the new features are already apparent. The bug hunting session went really well and the next TDF Board elections are about to commence. So, let’s take a sneak peek at some of the upcoming changes.
A new default Writer template has been deployed for LibreOffice 4.2. The new design was based on feedback from discussions to better guide the new user. One will be able to embed images into HTML files and the Spellcheck popup menu will now track changes allowing “previous change, next change, accept change and reject change operations.” Select-All will work even when the document begins with a table. Users will be able to put borders around just one character (or more) as well. Writer can now create .dot files (should you need to).
