LibreOffice 3.5.4 boosts large file performance
Less than a month after the last release of the open source office suite, the LibreOffice team has announced LibreOffice 3.5.4 which is supposed to be twice as fast as its predecessor when loading large files.
The performance boost is the combined result of many code optimisations done in the last few months of development and regular bug fixes made since the last release. The developers have proudly announced that this makes LibreOffice 3.5.4 "the fastest version of the best free office suite ever". In total, more than 70 bugs have been fixed in this version, many of which were affecting the stability of the product. A complete list of improvements can be found in the change logs for RC1 and RC2.
