The Document Foundation has announced the release of LibreOffice 3.4.1. The new release fixes several bugs that affected the previous version. 3.4.1 is not regarded as suitable for large enterprise deployments; it is still recommended that enterprises continue to use LibreOffice 3.3.3 which has already been extensively tested. LibreOffice 3.4.2 is due to target enterprise deployments and is expected to be released at the end of July. The Foundation does say that apart from enterprise users, LibreOffice 3.4.1 "can be safely deployed for production needs by most users".

The details of the majority of the fixes in 3.4.1 can be gleaned from the RC1 change log; it notes a number of crashing bugs fixed in Calc and Writer among other resolved issues. There are fewer known issues listed in the release notes but there are still problems with MS Office compatibility and recovery and a known crashing bug with Writer when using undo-redo on moved formulas.

LibreOffice 3.4.1 and LibreOffice 3.3.3 are available to download from the LibreOffice website and licensed under the LGPLv3.
