LibreOffice 5.3 Office Suite Enters Development, Will Arrive in February 2017

Yes, that’s right, we’re talking about LibreOffice 5.3, which will get an Alpha pre-release version in the week of October 17, a few days before the first bug hunting session, which is currently scheduled for Friday, October 21, 2016. During the bug hunting session, LibreOffice developers and hackers will perform tests on the LibreOffice 5.3 Alpha build in an attempt to fix an many bugs as possible. LibreOffice 5.3’s development cycle includes a single Alpha release, and after the first bug hunting session later in October, there will be a second one later this year for the Beta version of LibreOffice 5.3, which should arrive for public testing in the week of November 21. If multiple bugs are discovered after the Beta 1 release, there might be a Beta 2 in the following week, around December 7, 2016.
