New Features

Say hello to the NotebookBar!

LibreOffice 6.2 includes a new - but optional - user interface design called the NotebookBar. It unifies toolbars, and groups them into tabs, helping you to work smarter and faster. Watch this video to see it in action, and how you can try it:

Word processing at the next level

In Writer, when you're tracking changes in a document, performance is much faster - especially in large documents. In addition, you can now paste spreadsheet data directly in an existing table (rather than as an object, plain text or new table). LibreLogo, the programming interface for graphic design and education, has got unit testing, compiler fixes and improvements.

Take your spreadsheets further

In Calc, it's now possible to do multivariate regression analysis using the regression tool. Many more statistical measures are available in the analysis output, while data validation now supports custom formulas. Finally, a new function, REGEX, was added, to match text against a regular expression and optionally replace it.

Pristine presentations and drawings

When you're editing an animation in Impress, you can now change the motion path by dragging its control points. Also, a couple of text-related drawing styles were added, while a Table submenu was added to the Format menu in Draw.

LibreOffice online - your office suite, anywhere

In LibreOffice Online, the cloud-based version of the suite, the user interface has been simplified for mobile devices, with better responsiveness and updates to the on-screen keyboard. Meanwhile, security has been strengthened with Vereign-compatible authentication and document signing, along with a new signing infobar.

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.
