The Document Foundation announced today announced the release and general availability of LibreOffice 7.2.5 as the fifth maintenance update to the latest and greatest series of LibreOffice 7.2 office suites.
Coming exactly one month later LibreOffice 7.2.4, which was an emergency update to address a critical vulnerability, the LibreOffice 7.2.5 update is here to fix a total of 90 bugs (according to the RC1 and RC2 changelogs) across all core components of the open-source and cross-platform office suite, and to further improve document compatibility.
This is the fifth of seven planned maintenance updates for the LibreOffice 7.2 office suite series, which was released in mid-August 2021 with many new features and improvements, including improved interoperability with the MS Office document formats, native support for Apple M1 machines, and several UI improvements.
With the LibreOffice 7.1 series reaching its end-of-life on November 30, 2021, The Document Foundation recommends that all users upgrade to the LibreOffice 7.2 series, which will be supported until June 12, 2022.
You can now download the LibreOffice 7.2.5 update from the official website for GNU/Linux platforms in the DEB and RPM file formats, as well as a source tarball for those who feel like compiling their own LibreOffice instance or for Linux OS administrators.
Those of you who have installed LibreOffice from the software repositories of your favorite GNU/Linux distributions should keep an eye on the stable repositories for the new version and update as soon as possible for a more stable and reliable office suite experience.
The next planned update in the LibreOffice 7.2 series is LibreOffice 7.2.6, which is currently scheduled for early March 2022 with more bug fixes and improved document compatibility for those dealing with proprietary document formats, especially from MS Office.
