Libre Office Version 5.3 Released


LibreOfficeIf you're a user of Libre Office, the world's most popular free office software suite, you're probably running a variant of version 5.2 or earlier.

Version 5.3 has just been announced and is now available for download, if you are keen to always have the latest and greatest version of your key software products. This version is being dubbed the most feature-rich edition so far.
