LibreOffice 5.0 officially released

LibreOffice logoThe Document Foundation has finally released LibreOffice 5.0, the next-generation open-source office suite. It's a new major release in the series, and it brings Windows 10 compatibility and lots of interoperability features.

Each new edition of LibreOffice seems to be bigger than the previous one, and the developers from The Document Foundation are not pulling any punches. They've made hundreds of changes and improvements, making it difficult even to list everything in one place. As usual, a large part of the new release is made up of various fixes, but new features have been implemented as well.

The Document Foundation has estimated that the previous 4.x branch has been used by more than 80 million users, so any new release puts huge pressure on the team to deliver the best experience possible. That means that everything needs to be spot on, even if it's a big release and lots of new features have been added.
