Strictly speaking, Oracle’s Openoffice.org and The Document Foundation (TDF)’s LibreOffice are two varieties of the same origin. Although they are dominantly similar, some differences are notable too.
Along with all the features of OpenOffice, the first stable release LibreOffice 3.3 provides new features as well. Some of them have been listed below:
- The ability to import and work with SVG files;
- An easy way to format title pages and their numbering in Writer;
- A more-helpful Navigator Tool for Writer;
- Improved ergonomics in Calc for sheet and cell management; and
- Microsoft Works and Lotus Word Pro document import filters.
Apart from these, many great extensions are now bundled in LibreOffice 3.3, providing PDF import, a slide-show presenter console and a much improved report builder. For complete list of features, head over to libreoffice.org/download/new-features-and-fixes/
