Today, July 3, The Document Foundation (TDF) announced in a press release that the famous AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) company joined its Advisory Board, in order to accelerate the development of the LibreOffice open source office suite.
A couple of days ago, The Document Foundation announced the formation of the LibreOffice Advisory Board. The function of the LibreOffice Advisory Board will be to provide The Document Foundation with advice, guidance and proposals.
AMD, the giant CPU and GPU manufacturer, is now a member of the Open Office Foundations advisory board, the organization behind LibreOffice.

AMD is planning to make an impact immediately by using its expertise to help optimize the LibreOffice spreadsheet app for GPUs.
The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.3.1, the first minor release of LibreOffice 4.3 fresh family, with over 100 fixes (including patches for two CVEs, backported to LibreOffice 4.2.6-secfix, which is also available for download now).
The Document Foundation has announced that the final version of LibreOffice 4.2.6 is now available for download. The developers from The Document Foundation have released a new stable build in the 4.2.x version of LibreOffice, just a few days after the main branch of the suite, 4.3, made its grand appearance.
