Version History of LibreOffice 4.0.1

The following notes apply:

  • This release is bit-for-bit identical to the 4.0.1 Release Candidate 2, so you don't need to download or reinstall if you have that version already.
  • The distribution for Windows is an international build, so you can choose the user interface language that you prefer. Help content is available via an online service, or alternatively as a separate install.
  • Our Windows binaries are digitally signed by The Document Foundation.
  • For Windows users that have OpenOffice.org installed, we advise uninstalling that beforehand, because it registers the same file type associations.
  • If you run Linux, the GCJ Java variant has known issues with LibreOffice, we advise to e.g. use OpenJDK instead.
  • LibreOffice 4.x drops a few long-deprecated features, including support for legacy binary StarOffice files, export to legacy Word and Excel (version 6.0/95), and legacy ODMA document management.
  • Some menu entries have changed or added. If you miss something, that may be due to the use of customised menu settings from your previous LibreOffice installation.
  • This version still contains a few annoying bugs, as listed here. Specifically, the German Duden Korrektor extension needs a manual fix.
