LibreOffice 4.2.3 arrives with Heartbleed fix

The Document Foundation has announced the release of LibreOffice 4.2.3 which is available for free download. The foundation says “LibreOffice 4.2.3 ‘Fresh’ is the most feature rich version of the software, and is suited for early adopters willing to leverage a larger number of innovations. For enterprise deployments and for more conservative users, The Document Foundation suggests the more mature LibreOffice 4.1.5 ‘Stable’.”

The version also comes with a fix for the most terrifying bug ‘Heartbleed’. In addition the release comes for HiDPI monitor support. Other notable fixes  to improve compatibility with Microsoft’s Docx include fix for nested tables anchored inside tables, layout problem with automatic spacing and verwriting of WW8Num* character styles. You can check out fixes and improvement in the changelog here.
