  • LibreOffice for Mac OS X needs to be run at least once before installing a LanguagePack tdf#89657
  • the Windows package will update a previously installed version of LibreOffice


  • LibreOffice 5.0 will be made available as 64bit version in addition to the 32bit version. Installing the 64bit version requires Windows Vista or newer, the 32bit Version runs on Windows XP or newer.
