Two years of LibreOffice

Project: LibreOffice

LibreOffice is the most powerful and viable Free Software office suite, available across an increasing wealth of platforms. Come and hear a quick history and rational behind project. We'll look at what we've achieved so far primarily in development, but also in governance, community and process.

We ought to look at the wealth of new features shipping in the latest release, and take a look at some of the new things that are in the pipeline.

See a demo of the LibreOffice On-Line prototype, get a view of our in-progress Android Viewer application and port, and hear how almost all the work we do for these products helps the normal
fat-client office experience too. Catch a glimpse too of our collaborative editing prototype, hear about it's design and issues.

Finally find the best place for you to make a blow for Free Software as part of our development team; see you there.
