The Document Foundation has announced the release of LibreOffice 3.6, with lots of new features. "Wherever you look you see improvements: a new CorelDRAW importer, integration with Alfresco via the CMIS protocol and limited SharePoint integration, color-scales and data-bars in spreadsheet cells, PDF export watermarking, improved auto-format function for tables in text documents, high quality image scaling, Microsoft SmartArt import for text documents, and improved CSV handling. In addition, there is a lot of contributions from the design team: a cleaner look, especially on Windows PCs, beautiful new presentation master pages, and a new splash screen." More information can be found in the new feature summary and release notes. In addition, Michael Meeks has put together a "behind-the-scenes" view of 3.6 development, including information on dead code removal, build system improvements, more unit tests, and so on.
