LibreOffice 5.1 comes with many improvements in speed, quality and user experience. Reduced startup time and better overall performance on Windows and other platforms are just some of the highlights.
LibreOffice 5.1 ships with a number of user experience improvements across its modules to make users more productive: new and simplified application menus, along with improved controls on charts and diagrams.
Impress has an even better user experience out of the box, with deeper integration of OpenGL, better slide transitions and simplified menus and options.
LibreOffice 5.1 adds support for Apple Keynote 6 presentation slides, Gnumeric files, VBA macro streams back into MS OOXML, as well as the ability to save files on remote locations such as cloud storage providers.
Many great features have been added in LibreOffice 5.1 Calc, such as statistics regressions - linear, logarithmic and power - with a new dialog window to calculate them. Then there's powerful search of formatted display strings, improvements in menus, compatibility with MS OOXML and new mathematical functions.
LibreOffice is Free Software that would not be possible without The Document Foundation and its volunteer contributors. For this release we would particularly like to thank the developers listed for their tremendous work and effort inside our release notes. You can contribute to the LibreOffice and Document Liberation project as well – see how you can get involved here.
