    New LibreOffice 4.0 released

    For those who choose to not pay for MS Office and want a free local alternative instead;

    The Document Foundation has announced LibreOffice 4.0, the latest version of the free software competitor to Microsoft Office that spun off from the effort in 2010, describing it as nothing less than "the free office suite the community has been dreaming of since 2001.""LibreOffice 4.0 is the first release that reflects the objectives set by the community at the time of the announcement, in September 2010: a cleaner and leaner code base, an improved set of features, better interoperability, and a more diverse and inclusive ecosystem," the Document Foundation's Italo Vignoli wrote in a blog post on Wednesday.

    Among other improvements, version 4.0 is more compatible with Microsoft's Rich Text Format (RTF) and DOCX file formats the latter being the XML-based Word document format first introduced in Office 2007.
