LibreOffice 4.2 is an important release; here’s why

Charles-H. Schulz has written a post examining why LibreOffice 4.2 matters more than you think. He gives three main reasons:

  1. This is a major code overhaul, including a brand new engine for Calc.
  2. It is more Enterprise-ready than many others. The post provides examples.
  3. It’s not about success. It’s about what comes next. The amount of code clean-up, refactoring, write up, the inclusion of new features and the continued growth of contributors between the moment the Document Foundation released LibreOffice 4.0 and the 4.2 is truly amazing. The 4.0 was a major accomplishment, but this time we did even more.
