LibreOffice is a productivity suite that is compatible with other major office suites, and available on a variety of platforms. It is free software and therefore free to download, use and distribute.
Beta Release Notes
This beta release is not intended for production use!
There are a number of known issues being worked on:
* All builds are English-only (en-US). We regret that we were unable to provide other localized versions. We are currently working on an improved mechanism to make localized versions in your language available.
* The LibreOffice branding and renaming is new and work in progress. You may still see old graphics, icons or websites. So please bear with us. This also applies to the BrOffice.org branding - applicable in Brazil.
* If you want to extend LibreOffice with new features via Extensions, then the link within the software refers, in error, to the OpenOffice.org Extension website. For Free Software extensions, please use the FSF Extension List at http://fsf.org/openoffice instead.
* The current LibreOffice beta replaces any existing OpenOffice.org installation, on Windows. Installations should co-exist in the future.
