LXer: LibreOffice goes for “cleaner and leaner code base” with major update

Published at LXer:

Cleaning up the code has been a major focus. "The resulting code base is rather different from the original one, as several million lines of code have been added and removed, by adding new features, solving bugs and regressions, adopting state of the art C++ constructs, replacing tools, getting rid of deprecated methods and obsoleted libraries, and translating twenty-five thousand lines of comments from German to English," the Document Foundation said in its LibreOffice 4.0 announcement. "All of this makes the code easier to understand and more rewarding to be involved with for the stream of new members of our community."

Libreoffice has made a lot of progress, and I've been using it ever since Oracle bought Sun. I will continue to use it.

I agree! Libreoffice is very stable too, in my experience. Pretty much everything works!
