LibreOffice “Going Forward as Planned”
Earlier this week, Oracle announced they would discontinue their commercial version of OpenOffice and contribute the project to the community, leading some to question what impact this would have on LibreOffice. The Document Foundation, home of LibreOffice, have posted a statement affirming it’s business as usual, although they make no explicit reference to Oracle’s decision:
“The development of TDF community and LibreOffice is going forward as planned, and we are always willing to include new members and partners.”
