Software Update: LibreOffice 7.2.3

Spread the love

The Document Foundation has released the third update to version 7.2 of LibreOffice. This open source office package originated as a fork of OpenOffice and comes with the word processor Writer, spreadsheet program Calc, presentation program Impress, drawing program Draw, database program Base and Formula, an application for making scientific notations.

In version 7.2 Among other things, we find improved support for Microsoft Office files and performance improvements when opening and editing large files. Furthermore, there is now also a version for computers equipped with an Apple processor. Version 7.2.3 had two release candidates, with a total of 112 improvements.
