The Document Foundation today released the LibreOffice 6.2 Office Suite. The new version introduces several new features and many improvements.
After six months in development, the LibreOffice office suite has reached version 6.2 and is now available for download. It has a new interface called NotebookBar, which is based on the MUFFIN idea, which until recently was an experimental feature. The NotebookBar interface is optional, not enabled by default, and is available in three different versions: tabbed, grouped, and contextual.
Features of LibreOffice 6.2 include upgraded data images and Karasa Jaga, better compatibility with Microsoft Office documents such as charts and animations, better document security features thanks to encryption and HMAC authentication, and faster index keyword filtering and underline search terms.
Last but not least, LibreOffice 6.2 makes the context menu more consistent with various elements of the office suite, improves change tracking performance, especially when dealing with large documents, and improves the cloud-based LibreOffice Online suite with a refreshed keyboard. as well as a simplified and more customized user interface for mobile devices.
LibreOffice 6.2 is the second version of the LibreOffice 6.x series and will be supported until November 30, 2019, with no less than seven maintenance updates. The first of these, LibreOffice 6.2.1, is scheduled for the end of the month.
