The Document Foundation (TDF) has released LibreOffice version 3.3.3 for businesses to download.

The Document Foundation (TDF) has released LibreOffice version 3.3.3 for businesses to download.

TDF said LibreOffice 3.3.3 is the most stable version of the free office suite and is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

Thorsten Behrens, a developer and member of the TDF steering committee, said: "LibreOffice 3.3.3 fixes several bugs and improves the security of the suite, to specifically address the needs of corporate deployments, where stability is more important than new features."

LibreOffice 3.4.0 is also now available. However, TDF advised corporations to wait for the 3.4.1 release before updating. New features will include improved compatibility with Excel spreadsheets and user interface.

Behrens added, "This branch [3.3.x] will be maintained until the end of the year, to allow a smooth and safe transition to LibreOffice 3.4.x."

Open source enthusiasts claimed independence for the free office software from Oracle's Sun Microsystems after 10 years in October 2010.

Sun Microsystems launched the project in 1990 to create a community-based international office suite, able to run on all major platforms and access all functionality and data using open application programming interfaces and XML.

Users of LibreOffice 3.3.2 can download the update here.
