    General for this Release Candidate: parallel installation

    • This build is in release configuration
    • the Linux and Mac packages can be installed in parallel to LibreOffice 5.2, but not run simultaneously - documents will be opened in the version you've started first.
    • the Windows package will update a previously installed version of LibreOffice


    • LibreOffice 5.4 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
    • Note: LibreOffice 5.4 will be the last codeline to support Windows XP or Vista - later versions will require Windows 7 or newer.
    • Windows builds of RC1 are codesigned with a new certificate issued by DigiCert (please report any issues with Virus protection software or similar)
