Zoom LibreOffice is now available from the Intel AppUp store for Windows applications
The Document Foundation has announced that the open source LibreOffice productivity suite is now available from the Intel AppUp center, a store for Windows applications.

The AppUp-specific version, referred to as "LibreOffice for Windows from SUSE" by the non-profit organisation, has been validated by Intel and is provided as a "special, five-language version" that includes support for English, German, French, Spanish and Italian. TDF does not say which version of LibreOffice is being offered – 3.5.0 is the current stable release.

At the same time, The Document Foundation also confirmed that Intel has become the newest member of TDF Advisory Board, the body that provides advice and guidance for the LibreOffice project. "We are thrilled to add Intel to our existing roster of supporters," said TDF Chairman of the Board Florian Effenberger, adding that "TDF is first and foremost a vendor neutral project committed to excellence in the office suite space, but we greatly value the support and advice we gain from organisations." Other Advisory Board members include SUSE, Red Hat, Google, the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and Software in Public Interest (SPI).

The Intel AppUp center is available to download from the AppUp web site; registration is required. While the LibreOffice AppUp page correctly notes that LibreOffice also supports Windows XP, according to its site, AppUp only works with 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 7.
