As if the plethora of features offered by the amazing open source project weren’t already great, they’ve now become even greater.

From this version on LibreOffice is also going to be available for mobile devices too, just like its closed source counterpart.


However, for starters, not all mobile platforms will be able to benefit from the coming of the entirely free office suite;

As an open source project, it might not surprise you that the first mobile platforms to be supported by LibreOffice are actually Android and Ubuntu Touch (yes, no iPhone support as of yet, though it may be available in the future).

Beyond a mobile version which is a fantastic achievement in itself, 5.0 also brings 64-bit version to Windows platform which basically means better performance for most PCs that are about 3 years old or less (most modern PCs support 64-bit).

Furthermore, new improvements to LibreOffice also include: new icons, new languages / locales, improved filters (for MS Office, PDF, RTF, etc…) and Emoji and in-word replacement support among others.
