A public bug-hunting session was held for that release in late December, resulting in the identification of more than 70 bugs, the Document Foundation reports. The next bug-hunting session for the release will take place on Jan. 20 and 21.

Also currently in the works is an online version of LibreOffice, as Charles Schulz, a member of the Document Foundation's steering committee, recently pointed out.

Meanwhile, the Apache OpenOffice project is targeting a first-quarter 2012 release for version 3.4 of its competing office suite--even as Germany-based Team OpenOffice.org works on its own "White Label Office 3.3.1."
