LibreOffice Won’t Ship With Global Menu By Default in 11.10

LibreOffice in Ubuntu 11.10 will notcome with global menu support enabled by default.

Announcing the minor change via his blog, Canonical’sBjrn Michaelsen cited ‘stabiltiy concerns’ as the main reason for disabling the add-on by default.

It’s a disappointingbutperfectly understandabledecisionthat will ensure users of LibreOffice in Ubuntu 11.10 benefit from a stable anddependable office suite.

The package (“lo-menubar”) will remain easily installable from the Ubuntu Software Centre in Ubuntu 11.10 for those willing to use it.
