LibreOffice 4.0.2 RC1 Is Available for Download, Fixes DOCX Issues

The latest version of LibreOffice can be downloaded from Softpedia

The Document Foundation has announced that the final version for LibreOffice 4.0.2 RC1 is now available for the Linux platform, bringing a lot of bug fixes and improvements.

According to The Document Foundation, starting with version 4.0.0, the LibreOffice installer files have a new naming scheme. The most important is that "LibO" is replaced by "LibreOffice" in the names – so if you use scripts to download the packages, you will have them updated to the new schema.

The new LibreOffice 4.0.2 RC1 has arrived fairly quickly after the release of 4.0.1, but it seems they've managed to squeeze quite a lot of fixes.

As a side note from the developers, the Linux packages can be installed in parallel to LibreOffice 3.6, but do not run simultaneously.

Highlights of LibreOffice 4.0.2 RC1:

• Floating tables import has been fixed in writerfilter;

• The draw function show obscure characters in CDR file instead of Russian characters;

• Particular MSO2007 .docx document is no longer "shortened" (part of contents missing);

• Typing an existing style name into Style box no longer changes hierarchy of styles;

• Importing CDR files with polish characters is now possible;
