Dear Community,

The Document Foundation is pleased to announce the third (the second
wasn't officially released) Beta release of LibreOffice 5.0.0. The
upcoming 5.0.0 will be the tenth major release of LibreOffice, coming
with a bunch of new features beside the usual bugfixes.

The Beta3 can be installed alongside the stable version, so feel free
to give it a try. Beta3 is not ready for production yet, and while
in feature freeze, final UI and string freeze is yet to come, and
translations are not complete.

A work-in-progress list of new features in LibreOffice 5.0 can be
found at https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/5.0

The release is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X from our QA
builds download page at


There is also a 64bit version available for Windows (please note that
the 64bit version requires Windows Vista or newer, while the 32bit
version runs on Windows XP or later)
