Berlin, March 15, 2012 - The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice
3.5.1, the second version of the 3.5 family, targeting private
individuals and enterprises. LibreOffice 3.5.1 fixes the majority of the
most-important bugs identified by users and is expected to be appealing
for most enterprises.

TDF encourages large organizations to deploy LibreOffice in conjunction
with a support partner, who can assess specific requirements, help
manage migration and provide bespoke fixes for identified issues.
Purchasing LibreOffice support from a TDF partner provides enterprises
with an indirect means to contribute financially to the project, to fund
software development, to improve the stability and accelerate the growth.

"During the last month, the number of TDF hackers has overtaken the
threshold of 400 code developers, with a large majority of independent
volunteers and several companies paying full time hackers. In any case,
the project is independent, as none of these companies employs more than
7% of the developers", affirms Italo Vignoli, member of the Board of
Directors. "Since September 2010, a monthly average of 20 new hackers
has joined the project, attracted by the copyleft license, the lack of
copyright assignment and a welcoming environment".

LibreOffice 3.5.1 is available for immediate download from the following
