Software update: LibreOffice 6.3.4

The Document Foundation has released the fourth update for version 6.3 of LibreOffice. This open source office package comes with the word processor Writer, spreadsheet program Calc, presentation program Impress, drawing program Draw, database program Base and Formula, an application for creating scientific notations.

In version 6.3 we see, among other things, performance improvements in Writer and Calc when a document has multiple bookmarks, tables and embedded fonts, and the export to PDF and support of Microsoft Office documents have been improved. Version 6.3.4 had two release candidates, in which a total of 136 improvements have been made.
