The LibreOffice developers from The Document Foundation have released LibreOffice 3.6.4, an incremental update to the open source office suite that fixes over 60 bugs. The fixed bugs include problems with the office suite's RTF support, display problems with Hebrew font symbols, and several crashing problems. Bugs in the LibreOffice UI were also addressed, such as check boxes that would not retain their state, resetting configuration dialogs, and sorting of tables in the Calc spreadsheet application that did not work correctly.

Although few features from the recent LiMux hackfest, attended by more than 30 LibreOffice developers, made it into this release, a number of enhancements have been developed that should make it into a future version of LibreOffice. These include support for Microsoft Word's WW8 binary document format and improvements to Writer's formatting interface; the PDF import feature is also being moved from an extension and will become an integral part of LibreOffice itself. To help with these efforts, the developers have set up a test instance of a code review system based on Gerrit.

A complete list of all changes in LibreOffice 3.6.4 is available in the two change logs. Licensed under the LGPLv3, binaries of LibreOffice 3.6.4 for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, as well as source code, are available from the project's download page.
