and stability

Berlin, August 16, 2016 – Volunteers active in LibreOffice Documentation
Project within The Document Foundation announce the availability of the
Getting Started Guide for LibreOffice 5.1. The book updates the
traditional introductory text with the new features provided by the
“still” version of the software, targeted to enterprise deployments and
to individual users looking for superior quality and stability.

Updated by members of the community, the book is an effort to fill the
gap in official documentation for LibreOffice. The Document Foundation
is working hard to reduce the delay between the release of the software
and its companion documentation, for a better user experience and a
stronger competitive offering.

“Many communities consider the Getting Started Guide as a source for
translation into their native language, to create localized textbooks
for teaching LibreOffice in all environments, from academia to the
enterprise,” says Olivier Hallot, documentation coordinator at TDF. “A
timely release of these books will send a strong message about the
commitment of the community for professional collaterals.”

“In addition to the free downloads of the book in PDF and ODT (editable)
forms, users can buy printed copies,” says Jean Hollis Weber, volunteer
writer, editor, and publisher of the official LibreOffice guides. “I’ve
been working with a great group of other documentation volunteers, but
we always need more people.”

Australia-based volunteer organization with members around the world,
which supports the LibreOffice project), visit
