In October, the @opensuse and LibreOffice communities will have a shared conference – and we already have a logo! Thanks to Kukuh Syafaat for the design: https://blog.documentfoundation.org/blog/2020/01/24/winner-announced-for-2020-conference-logo-competition/
@mirsch Great, glad to hear it!
LibreOffice 6.4 is nearly here – and in the meantime, our documentation community has been updating the guides! For instance, the guide for the Math module is already available: https://blog.documentfoundation.org/blog/2020/01/22/the-documentation-team-announces-the-math-guide-6-4/
@zleap Hi Paul, the "What can I do for LibreOffice" website was developed by volunteers as an extra way to get involved, on top of the main "Get Involved" page that you linked to. Perhaps we should consolidate them into a single page, when we have the time – any help would be appreciated! 🙂 👍
Our Brazilian LibreOffice community is now on Mastodon! Check it out: https://masto.donte.com.br/@libreofficebr
LibreOffice 6.4 is due to be released at the end of this month! Our community and certified developers are working on new features and ironing out bugs – if you have some technical knowledge, give them a hand: https://qa.blog.documentfoundation.org/2020/01/13/libreoffice-6-4-rc2-is-ready-for-testing/
@KagurazakaInkscape Sorry, I don't speak that language!
@allenwrench It's a very different program today. In the LibreOffice 3.x and 4.x series, there was a huge amount of code rewriting and restructuring. There may still be some older code in there, but it's not at all the same program – otherwise it wouldn't have all the advancements, new features, file format compatibility etc.!
We believe that powerful productivity tools should be available to all, in as many languages as possible! Saikeo Kavhanxay is translating LibreOffice into Lao, for instance – learn how you can also help with other languages: https://blog.documentfoundation.org/blog/2019/12/23/community-member-monday-saikeo-kavhanxay/
@kirschwipfel Where are we promoting Threema? We're not even on Threema...
@kirschwipfel I see your point, but we have to reach out and talk to people where they are. We could completely close ourselves off from Twitter, Telegram etc., but arguably we'd lose a huge base of potential users (and contributors!) We are trying to do more with platforms like Mastodon and Peertube, but if we want to grow as a project and community, I think we also need to reach out to people on other services, even if they're not 100% open...
