LibreOffice in Flatpak format
Flatpak is a cool new way of distributing images of Linux applications that run on a wide range of different distros, and run there in a secure way.
Until LibreOffice 5.4.3, we also provided (x86-64–only) Flatpak builds directly through the TDF infrastructure (direct link to download old LibreOffice.flatpakref). Those old versions used a “fresh” Flatpak branch name, while (for technical reasons) the Flathub versions use a “stable” Flatpak branch name. When you switch to the new Flathub versions, you can remove the old version on the command line with
flatpak uninstall org.libreoffice.LibreOffice//fresh
A few items to note:
The LibreOffice Flatpak is based on the GNOME 3.24 runtime (older versions were based on GNOME 3.20), using LibreOffice's much-improved GTK3 backend. This should offer the most complete set of features in LibreOffice, paving the way to Wayland etc.
The single bundle contains all localizations available for LibreOffice (as it doesn't really affect the bundle's overall size that much).
At this time, there is no Flatpak version of the LibreOffice Software Development Kit (SDK).
- Bugs only appearing in the Flatpak version should be reported to Flathub.
