The Document Foundation has announced that the final version for LibreOffice 4.0.2 RC2 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 RC2 has arrived fairly quickly after the release of 4.0.2 and it shows in the changelog.

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 RC2:

• More user extensions are now migrating when one fails;
• Calc no longer decreases one day from the typed date;
• Error bars values no longer become Y-values when copying charts from Calc to Writer;
• Unable to "Save" (or "Save As") New Document Linux error, on Samba (gvfs) Mounted Share, has been fixed;
• Users can now close Autocorrect Options by using 'Close-X' at the top right corner of dialog;
• A few errors have been fixed in the layout margins of the text boxes;
• The application no longer provides the wrong result when 'Property Let' fails to execute;
• Saving particular odg file no longer resets the font formatting;
• Visio documents can now be opened by Draw;
• A crash in Impress, that occurs when right-clicking a selected word, has been fixed;
• Libreoffice no longer hangs when exporting a particular .ods file to .xlsx format.
