Open source’s premiere office suite keeps getting better with each new release. Here’s a look at some of the new features in LibreOffice 5.3.
The Screening Room
LibreOffice, an already very strong free office suite, keeps getting better and better. See an overview of the new features in LibreOffice 5.3 in this video.
At the public library where I work, whenever someone shows me their new laptop, I offer to download and install LibreOffice. I explain, “You could also buy Microsoft Office, if you have no better use of your money. But you should first try this out and see if it meets all your needs. Come and ask me any questions you have about the software, too. We offer LibreOffice here on our public computers because the library is confident it will meet people’s needs.”
