Fact sheet: LibreOffice 4.1
By Jack Wallen in Linux and Open Source,August 28, 2013, 12:32 PM PST
Here is a quick fact sheet about the changes and improvements youcan see in LibreOffice 4.1.
LibreOffice is the flagship office suite from the open source community. It offers the bestwork flow between MS Office and any other office suite on the market. With the latestreleases, LibreOffice has made even more strides to bridge the gap between businessusers and open source. And with the nightmare of licensing that is become of MS Office2013, users are starting to seriously look for alternatives.But what does LibreOffice have to offer that might make you finally make that leap fromwhat could be a sinking ship to a solid life boat called LibreOffice 4.1? Let's take a look atthe facts.
Bug fixes
LibreOffice 4.1 was released with over 3,000 bugs fixed (400 were completed in conjunctionwith the Apache developers).
LibreOffice 4.1 marks a major step forward for LibreOffice/MS Office interoperability. One ofthe primary focuses in this area has been to improve the support for Microsoft OOXMLimport and export, plus the legacy MS Office formats (including RTF). One of the areas thatsaw major improvement was the addition of font embedding in Writer, Calc, Impress, andDraw. With font embedding, it's much easier to retain the original document formatting whenthe fonts used to produce the document are not installed on the target PC.
UI Change
With 4.1, LibreOffice borrows a feature from Apache OpenOffice called the SymphonySidebar (

). The Symphony Sidebar was actually a borrow from IBM Lotous
Symphony. This feature is considered “experimental,” but it offers immediate access to
formatting tools, the Gallery, the Navigator, and more. The standard menu-driven interfaceremains intact and will not disappear for the foreseeable future.

Other changes in the UI include: Added “Match
Case” option to search bar and a
CloseSearch button.
Photo Album for Impress
With this new feature you can create an Impress slide show with a series of photos (
). This cuts a significant amount of time from the creation of such slide shows. The imagesmust be in the same folder and need to have successive file names (such as IMG_1,IMG_2, IMG_3, etc.).
