Libreoffice71 1 Scaled

The Document Foundation has released the LibreOffice 7.1 open-source and cross-platform office suite for all supported platforms - a major release that introduces an array of new features and improvements.

The big news that The Document Foundation wants to share with us today is that they’ve released LibreOffice 7.1 Community, a version of the popular office suite that’s supported by volunteers and targeted at the general public, not at enterprises.

The labeling of LibreOffice has been discussed a while ago when The Document Foundation explained that splitting its LibreOffice office suite into “Personal” and “Enterprise” editions won’t affect the software’s functionality, availability or license. In fact, it will help evolve the product with new features that you will be able to benefit from.

LibreOffice 7.1 Community is supported by volunteers and developers employed by companies sitting in The Document Foundation’s Advisory Board, including Collabora, Red Hat and CIB/Allotropia, and it’s not optimized for the needs of enterprise users, who can opt for long-term support options, professional assistance, custom features and other benefits here.
