Introduction of LibreOffice 24.2.1 Office Suite: Over 100 Bug Fixes Implemented

The Document Foundation made an announcement about LibreOffice 24.2.1 being generally available as the first point release in the LibreOffice 24.2 series. This update fixes over 100 bugs.

LibreOffice 24.2.1 was released a month after LibreOffice 24.2 was launched. The previous update featured major changes such as a new calendar-based version numbering, new features for security and accessibility, as well as improved interoperability with MS Office.

With the launch of LibreOffice 24.2.1, The Document Foundation managed to fix a total of 102 bugs across all core elements of the office suite. Thanks to this, the latest LibreOffice 24.2 release offers improved stability and robustness. You can find detailed information about these bugs in the RC1 and RC2 changelogs.

You can download LibreOffice 24.2.1 from the official website. It is available as binaries for DEB and RPM-based GNU/Linux distributions, packaged by The Document Foundation. System integrators or those who want to compile LibreOffice from the source code can also find the source tarball.

Those of you who have LibreOffice 24.2 installed from the software repositories of your GNU/Linux distributions, will have to wait until the 24.2.1 packages arrive there and then perform a normal update of your installations.

The LibreOffice 24.2 office suite series will be supported with a total of seven maintenance updates until it reaches its end of supported live on November 30th, 2024. The next point release, LibreOffice 24.2.2, is planned for the end of March 2024.

For now, The Document Foundation recommends the LibreOffice 24.2 office suite only to power users and technology enthusiasts. For production systems, they still recommend using the LibreOffice 7.6 series, which was updated last week to LibreOffice 7.6.5.

Once again, The Document Foundation reminds us all that this is the “Community” edition of LibreOffice, supported by volunteers. For enterprise-class deployments, The Document Foundation recommends the LibreOffice Enterprise family of applications from ecosystem partners.
