The Document Foundation has announced the release of LibreOffice 4.0.4, the last version of the open source office suite before it moves on to the 4.1.x branch of releases, which is currently scheduled to arrive at the end of July. For this release, the developers of LibreOffice have closed 98 bug reports that also include a few improvements and some enhanced translations.

A number of the closed bug reports improve the importing and exporting of different file types and also include stability fixes. A critical crashing bug in Base was closed, meaning the database application will no longer crash when entering a second SELECT statement after successfully executing a query. The developers have also improved the user interface in various areas throughout the office suite. A full list of bug fixes and improvements is available in the release notes for the RC1 release of LibreOffice 4.0.4 – RC2 fixed one further problem.

Installers for Windows and Mac OS X, as well as RPM and .deb packages for Linux, are available from the LibreOffice download site. The software is licensed under the LGPLv3.
