LibreOffice 5.1 entered its final development stage now following the release of the 5.1 Alpha.

LibreOffice 5.1 is working on many new features and is planned for release in early February.

The Document Foundation today announced the final 5.1 development stage via this blog post. "LibreOffice 5.1 starts twice as fast than the previous version, and adds to the usual incremental interoperability improvements with MS Office file formats (including MS Office 2016) some nice features, such as the Chart Sidebar to change settings in a more intuitive way, an easier workflow with Google Drive, OneDrive and SharePoint, and a Style Menu in Writer which will help user to access this fundamental LibreOffice feature."

For those not wanting to test out the alpha version, LibreOffice 5.1 release candidates will begin in December.
