The Document Foundation has announced that the final version for LibreOffice, 4.0.1, is now available for the Linux platform, bringing a lot of bugfixes and improvements.
According to The Document Foundation, LibreOffice has grown intro the largest independent free software project focused on end user desktop productivity.
