LibreOffice

LibreOffice is the free power-packed Open Source personal productivity suite for Windows, Macintosh and Linux, that gives you six feature-rich applications for all your document production and data processing needs: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math and Base. We welcome the truly open development model around LibreOffice and are passionate about contributing to a project we use in our business on a daily basis. Lanedo is happy to participate in building an open, vendor independent ecosystem around LibreOffice and provides development resources and support services to anyone looking to improve their LibreOffice experience.

Some of our experience…

  • Paris region Île-de-France: We developed a publicly available WebDAV extension enabling cloud office document storage and retrieval for their 500,000 students.
  • LiMux: The City of Munich is running one of the largest and most recognized free software migrations, moving its 15,000 clients to free software and open standards like the OpenDocument Format (ODF). One of the requirements implemented by Lanedo was the change tracking compatibility, to ease collaboration and shared editing of documents with users of third-party file formats.
  • Brabantia: We were approached by Brabantia to fix a bug that caused LibreOffice to be unstable and crash when opening a complex documents. This was a quick and easy task for Lanedo, but it’s always good to fix crashes!
  • SimplifyMD: One of the most fun and coolest additions developed recently clearly was the e-ink functionality. If you own a tablet that allows you to make annotations to your documents using a stylus, you can now easily open those in LibreOffice for further editing now.
  • OSB Alliance: The interoperability between Microsoft Office documents and LibreOffice had needed improving in several areas. One of those was the way that frames, boarders and tables were displayed and aligned. We’ve improved LibreOffice to make the difference between opening documents in Microsoft Office and LibreOffice invisible.
  • Plio: Lanedo largely sponsored some of the work here, but the goal was to improve the scripts and approach used to create installation binaries on Windows. Previously it was a horrendous set of scripts in Perl and they’ve been improved vastly.

History

During 2011, Lanedo was asked by the Document Foundation to join the steering committee for the LibreOffice project. We were naturally honored to be asked and happy to be involved in the process at this level.

Lanedo and the Document Foundation have since also publicized a statement of support for LibreOffice.

Since 2012, Lanedo employs LibreOffice upstream developers, certified by the Document Foundation: certified developer list.
