LibreOffice 3.3.1 brings new colored icons and eliminates various
problems to improve stability

The Document Foundation maintains its enterprising release schedule

The Internet, February 23, 2011 - The Document Foundation announces
LibreOffice 3.3.1, the first micro release of the free office suite for
personal productivity, to improve the stability of the software and
eliminate several bugs and crashes affecting Windows, Linux and MacOS X
versions. LibreOffice 3.3.1 also brings new colorful icons based on The
Document Foundation branding guidelines, and includes updates to several
language versions.

"LibreOffice 3.3 was our very first stable release, and the feedback
from users has been extremely positive," says Thorsten Behrens, one of
the developers with a seat on the Steering Committee. "We have managed
to troubleshoot a large number of bugs within a very short time, in
order to maintain our enterprising release schedule. There will be
another minor release in a month, before our second feature release in
early May."

LibreOffice 3.3.1 has been rolled out only one week after the launch of
the funds challenge to collect donations towards the 50,000-euro capital
needed to establish The Document Foundation in Germany. An information
website has been put online at http://challenge.documentfoundation.org,
where you can donate via PayPal or bank transfer.

By just one week after the launch, more than 40,000 euros had been
accumulated, bringing the final target very close. All additional funds
collected before the closing date of March 21 will be used for operating
expenses such as infrastructure costs and registration of domain names
and trademarks, as well as for marketing expenses such as travel funding
for TDF representatives speaking at conferences, booth fees for trade
shows, and initial financing of merchandising items, DVDs and printed
material. There is a blog post on this subject:

During next week end, US volunteers from The Document Foundation will be
taking part at this year's Southern California Linux Festival (SCALE) in
Long Beach, CA, showcasing LibreOffice 3.3.1 for Linux, Windows and
MacOS in Booth #4 in the International Ballroom.
