Munich, August 8, 2019 – CIB, the innovation leader for output and document management, announces the availability of two different LibreOffice packages for the Microsoft Store: the first – a TDF branded version – is called LibreOffice Vanilla, while the second is called LibreOffice powered by CIB and is a CIB branded version of the software.
The two packages – which are based on the latest LibreOffice release from The Document Foundation – allow Windows 10 S users to easily download and install the leading free office suite for personal productivity on their PC. TDF branded version relies on the global LibreOffice community for assistance and help, while LibreOffice powered by CIB also provides online support, automatic updates and security fixes for 18 months.
“The package for the Microsoft Store extends LibreOffice powered by CIB product range for Windows, macOS and Linux, based on the following products: LibreOffice powered by CIB for Business, a business optimized version of LibreOffice; LibreOffice powered by CIB LTS (Long Term Support), focused on the needs of large organizations deploying LibreOffice as the cornerstone of their desktop productivity; and LibreOffice Online powered by CIB, a solution for the private cloud of organizations“, says Ulrich Brandner, CEO of CIB.
Applications on the Microsoft Store use the new generation packaging format MSIX/APPX, simple and secure, and are ready for deployment in Windows 10 S and beyond. Windows 10 S mode is a simplified version of Windows 10 for security and performance which offers the same experience. To improve security, it only allows Microsoft Store apps and requires Microsoft Edge for browsing.
CIB – with offices in Germany and Spain – is currently one of the largest contributors to LibreOffice development, with a global multilingual team with decades of hacking and consulting experience on the code base and the product. In addition, the company offers professional services for migrations and training, and fast-response support only for LibreOffice powered by CIB.
