LibreOffice 5.4, a new version of the popular cross-platform open source Office suite, has been released on July 28, 2017 to the public.
The new version, which is the last major release of the LibreOffice 5.x family, improves Microsoft Office compatibility, new features in all modules, and better PDF rendering for imported PDF documents.
The new version can be downloaded already from the official project website. Update checks in LibreOffice, which you can run with a click on Help > Check for Updates, don't pick up the new LibreOffice 5.4 release yet. It is only a matter of time though before they do.

LibreOffice 5.4 has been released for all supported operating systems -- Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux -- and for the cloud.
