Dear Community,

The Document Foundation is pleased to announce a first Beta release of
our upcoming LibreOffice 4.0, that is (almost) feature-complete. The
upcoming 4.0 will be our fifth major release in just over two years,
and comes with a nice set of new features. Please be aware that
LibreOffice 4.0 Beta1 is not ready for production use, you should
continue to use LibreOffice 3.6.4 for that.

For further milestones towards 4.0, please refer to our release plan
timings here:


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


Should you find bugs, please report them to the FreeDesktop Bugzilla:


A good way to assess the release candidate quality is to run some
specific manual tests on it, our TCM wiki page has more details:

been possible without your help.
