LibreOffice 3.4, the ‘second major release’ of the free office suite from The Document Foundation, has been released this afternoon.

Amongst the changes LibreOffice 3.4 brings to Linux users are faster start-up times, improved GTK theme integration and ‘better text rendering’ via Cairo.

Application wise ‘Calc’ gains improved performance and Excel compatibility; ‘Write’ receive some ‘minor cosmetic’ interface changes – including some sexy new gradient/drop-shadow to page appearance – and ‘Impress’ gets improved HTML export.

Also shipping as standard is support for the Ubuntu Unity Application Menu.
