The Document Foundation is pleased to announce the second Beta
release of LibreOffice 4.4.0. The upcoming 4.4.0 will be the ninth
major release of LibreOffice, coming with a bunch of new features
beside the usual bugfixes.

to give it a try. Beta2 is not ready for production yet, and while
Beta1 marks feature freeze, final UI and string freeze is yet to come,
