Five years ago today marked the fork of OpenOffice.org into LibreOffice and coincidentally the Apache Software Foundation put out news this weekend that a new version of OpenOffice is coming.

Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2 is reported to be coming soon, "Born as a simple bugfix release, it became an occasion for some deep restructuring in the project: several processes have now been streamlined (and some are still in the works), new people are on board and infrastructure has been improved. Now the wait is almost over, and we are approaching the final phases before the 4.1.2 release."

More details at blog.apache.org.

This news of an Apache OpenOffice update comes more than a month after the call to effectively end the project in favor of LibreOffice.
