    Phoronix: LibreOffice 4.5 Bumped To Become LibreOffice 5.0

    While we've been looking forward to the new features of LibreOffice 4.5 as the leading open-source office suite, version 4.5 is no more. The next version of LO is now going to be LibreOffice 5.0...

    Any reason for this? Like full port to GTK3 or something?

      Probably all the changes listed here: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...-GTK3-Gestures

      Even if they aren't done yet it sounds like they are IN the codebase and therefore represent a big delta from 4.5 to 4.4 as far as technology libreoffice is using.h
      All opinions are my own not those of my employer if you know who they are.

        I wonder if they've done any more work toward the de-javaization of LibreOffice. I remember them talking about it a lot around the time the fork happened.

          Probably Mozilla took over the project. Or Linus Torvalds...

              That is a gradual process, every release tends to have a little less java in LO.

                  I don't get why you would want to sound stupid.

                    Well, when google pushed YouTube to switch to "real" user names, a new outlet for stupidity had to be secured.
