LibreOffice 3.3.2, the second micro release of the Document Foundation's free office suite for personal productivity,  improves the stability of the software.
The Document Foundation has a tight shechule to meet the next planned release of Libre Office in mid-May however it seems to be on course the the release this week of  a second micro release, LibreOffice 3.3.2.
It explains that  the community of developers has been able to maintain the pace thanks to the increase in the number of contributors, and to the fact that those that have started with easy hacks in September 2010 are now working at substantial features. In addition, they have almost completed the code cleaning process, getting rid of German comments and obsolete functionalities.

Take the example of  Norbert, a French developer living in the United States:
 
"I have started hacking LibreOffice code on September 28, 2010, just a few hours after the announcement of the project, and I found a very welcoming community, where senior developers went out of their way to help newbies like me to become productive. After a few hours I submitted a small patch removing 5 or 6 lines of dead code... enough to get my feet wet and learn the workflow. In a short time, I ended up removing the VOS library - deprecated for a decade - from LibreOffice, and finding and fixing various threading issues in the process".

LibreOffice 3.3.2 was released just one day after the closing of the first funding round launched by The Document Foundation with a target of  50,000 euros. In the five-week online campaign  twice as much, i.e. around 100,000 euros has been donated. All additional funds will be used for operating expenses such as infrastructure costs and registration of domain names and trademarks, as well as for community development expenses.
