The Document Foundation has released LibreOffice 3.6.3 and is making new friends in Italy and Romania.

It's a minor bug-fixing release so there's no new features to speak of, you'll have to wait until LibreOffice 6.7 is released.

The foundation have been crowing (quite right too) about the governments and big business who are switching to LibreOffice (in many cases away from OpenOffice) It's not only the French Government and the City of Munich who are making the switch, several provinces in Italy, including the largest one in term of inhabitants are going free and open source, and among private companies switching there's the largest furniture manufacturer and retailer in Romania, with 1,000 Windows and GNU/Linux desktops.

And don't forget folks, the second LiMux HackFest is happening on November 23 to 25 in Munich where Pasta Hacking, an established tradition of LibreOffice Hackfests, will take place. We are not allowed to say what happens during pasta hacking, you have to attend to be let in on the secret, but we can tell you the pasta used is treated with the utmost respect.
