There's even more progress now to report on with LibreOffice's GTK3 tool-kit support.

LibreOffice has been making lots of progress with their GTK3 tool-kit support to better integrate the open-source office suite on modern Linux desktops and is also needed for running LibreOffice on Wayland. A few days ago we reported on GTK3 native context menus for LibreOffice while the latest to mention now are native menu bars.

The latest LibreOffice development code now has support for native GTK3 menu bars and menus. These new menus look much better than their old implementation and fits in much better with other GTK3 applications.

More details on this LibreOffice GTK3 improvement can be found via this blog post by developer Caolán McNamara who has been leading the charge on LibreOffice GTK3 support.
