From the ‘Fork That Beat Oracle‘ files:
Now that Oracle is (apparently) putting OpenOffice.org out to pasture, all eyes are focused on LibreOffice.
LibreOffice is ready and this week continued its development push forward with the release of LibreOffice 3.4 Beta 2.Even at the best of times under Sun’s ownership, we NEVER saw such rapid release cycles of OpenOffice. It just didn’t happen.
LibreOffice hasn’t just forked OpenOffice, they’ve accelerated it, both in terms of performance and the development timeline.
So what’s new in LibreOffice 3.4? Long story short, a whole lot.
