      • Starting with 3.5.3, LibreOffice windows installers are signed by The Document Foundation.

    Help files

    • The Windows multi-language installer as well as the langpacks do only contain localized UI. By default, LibreOffice uses online help - if you need help files on your disk, please install the helppack for your language. If there is no helppack for your language (because help has not been translated to your language), then you can install and use the English helppack or check the online help in any available language.


    In LibreOffice 3.5 a different encryption is introduced. LibreOffice 3.4.5 enables you to open those files.
    See the release notes page.
