LibreOffice, the free office suite for Windows, Mac and Linux has been updated with a significant number of design and user experience improvements including redesigned menu bars, context menus, toolbars, status bars and rulers.

 

LibreOffice 4.4 offers several significant improvements in other areas, too:

  • Support of OpenGL transitions in Windows, and improved implementation based on the new OpenGL framework;
  • Digital signing of PDF files during the export process;
  • Installation of free fonts Carlito and Caladea to replace proprietary Microsoft C-Fonts Calibri and Cambria, to get rid of font related issues while opening OOXML files;
  • Addition of several new default templates, designed by volunteers;
  • Visual editing of Impress master pages, to remove unwanted elements, adding or hiding a level to the outline numbering, and toggling bullets on or off;
  • Better Track Changes – with new buttons in the Track Changes toolbar – and AutoCorrect features in Writer;
  • Improved import filters for Microsoft Visio, Microsoft Publisher and AbiWord files, and Microsoft Works spreadsheets;
  • New import filters for Adobe Pagemaker, MacDraw, MacDraw II and RagTime for Mac;
  • Greatly expanded support for media capabilities on each platform.

Still looks right out of 1995.

If you are not using a touch screen monitor then this interface is much more productive than the new Microsoft Office GUI.

Looks like an half-a$$ job of the Citrus UI concept.
