LibreOffice 3.3 Released

Yes! Check out the announcement

Yay! LibreOffice3.3 can work with SVG at last. Check out the features and the roadmap. At last, it looks like there is new life in office suites. OpenOffice.org has been good to me since version 2.0 but the SVG issue was very annoying. I don’t do a lot of graphics but when I do I use SVG from InkScape and it is a pain to have to convert/scale everything. I like to concentrate on the writing, not file-shuffling.

  1. Ugh! I wonder how many megabytes went for that?

    Yay! I can finally save things as .docx! 😀

  3. We celebrate too soon. My first test of SVG importation failed with no diagnostics…. I drew some text and saved it as an SVG file.

    It turns out the importation thingie is not fully cooked yet. Text in an SVG does not import yet …

    I guess that will be a high priority item. Until then, I will have to do text freehand.
