The Document Foundation continues to stick to its commitment of updating LibreOffice at a rapid pace.

Barely a month after LibreOffice 3.3.1 was released, LibreOffice 3.3.2 is now available. This is a stability and bug fix release as well as translation updates.

Alongside the release, The Document Foundation is continuing to promote its openness to new contributions.

"I have started hacking LibreOffice code on September 28, 2010, just a
few hours after the announcement of the project, and I found a very
welcoming community, where senior developers went out of their way to
help newbies like me to become productive,"  Norbert, a French developer living in
the United States said in a statement issued by the Document Foundation. "After a few hours I submitted
a small patch removing 5 or 6 lines of dead code... enough to get my feet
wet and learn the workflow."

The next big release from LibreOffice will be the 3.4 release which is currently set for mid-May.
