"The LibreOffice Online Prototype, developed by SUSE Linux developer Michael Meeks, will be based on an HTML5 canvas and a GTK+ Broadway framework developed by Red Hat's Alex Larsson. The prototype is not ready for public use yet, but a demo video is available (Note: Your browser needs WebM support, such as Chrome's). Vignoli estimated the Online project will be ready in about a year's time.

"The port of LibreOffice to Android and iOS has basically been completed, but only in terms of the code being compiled to the new platforms. Vignoli emphasized that these flavors of LibreOffice were assuredly not ready, because their user interfaces were still based on the current LibreOffice interface and therefore useless in Android and iOS. At least, for now. The LibreOffice ports to Android and iOS is based on the voluntary work of Tor Lillqvist, a SUSE Linux developer from Finland who was instrumentatl in porting GIMP to Windows. "
