LibreOffice 3.4.0 Released

The new release offers several new features but is focused on contributors

The Internet, June 3rd, 2011 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 3.4.0, a major release of the free office suite for personal productivity developed by a community of sponsored and volunteer developers, and supported worldwide by local communities of volunteers. LibreOffice 3.4.0 is the second major release of the suite since the announcement of The Document Foundation in September 2010 and incorporates the contributions of over 120 developers (six times as many as the first beta released on the launch date).

"We care for our developers, and it shows", comments Italo Vignoli, a Steering Committee member and a spokesperson for TDF.
