LibreOffice 3.3.2 Released

The Document Foundation has come up with a good news today i.e. the second micro release of Libreoffice 3.3 is out now. This is primarily a bug-fix release which is all set to improve the stability & usability of the software and sets the platform for the next release viz Libreoffice 3.4, due in mid May. If you already have LibreOffice 3.3.2 RC2, then you dont need to remove it and reinstall it all over. Just wait for the update to hit the Update Manager.

For those who cant wait, the post is as follows


LibreOffice 3.3.2  –  32-Bit.deb64-Bit.deb

I – PPA Install

One of the easiest method of installing Packages in Ubuntu. Just type in the following commands & rest will be done automatically. (No need to download anything from the above link)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa

Note: This PPA might take some time to get updated to the newest version but we think it would have been done already.
