The free office suite LibreOffice received another update – Community Edition. As usual, such a significant change in the version number brings a lot of changes and innovations, a full list of them can be found at the link.

As the developer notes, the new features are aimed at new users migrating from Microsoft Office. Overall for the package, the update adds support for WebP images and EMZ/WMZ files, help pages for the ScriptForge library, a search box for the extension manager, plus the usual performance and compatibility improvements.

In addition, the Writer text editor has better tracking of changes in the footnote area, new typographical settings for hyphens, and edited lists reflect the original numbers in change tracking mode.

Calc spreadsheets got support for larger tables (up to 16384 columns), additional features in the AutoSum dropdown widget, and a new menu item for searching by page name. And finally, the Impress presentation editor received new functions for editing the document theme.

LibreOffice is distributed under the Open-Source scheme and can be freely downloaded from the official site where there are versions for Windows, macOS and Linux.
