The Document Foundation has announced that the final version of LibreOffice 4.2.6 is now available for download.
The developers from The Document Foundation have released a new stable build in the 4.2.x version of LibreOffice, just a few days after the main branch of the suite, 4.3, made its grand appearance.
“The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.2.6 ‘Still,’ the seventh and last minor release of the most solid version of the software, ready for enterprise deployments and conservative users. LibreOffice 4.2.6 arrives just one week after the successful launch of LibreOffice 4.3 ‘Fresh,’ the most feature rich version of the office suite,” reads the official announcement.
The developers maintain and develop a few stable branches and they are aimed at various users. This branch, for example, is included in the official repositories for Ubuntu and the new release should land soon for the users of that operating system.
Right now there are four distinct versions that you can get – 4.1.6, 4.2.5, 4.2.6, and 4.3.0. These supported versions will change as the developers move further on with the development. The Document Foundation provides files for all the major platforms out there, namely Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X, and the software is released as open source.
