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.

CIB spielte hier als einer der wenigen Anbieter von LibreOffice mit Langzeitsupport eine besondere Rolle.
Außerdem wurde das Event dazu genutzt, sich innerhalb der Community besser zu vernetzen und die Geschäftsbeziehungen in Spanien auszuweiten – mit Erfolg!
Die kommende Veranstaltung, an der wir teilnehmen werden, ist die OW2con’19 in Paris! Seid gespannt auf Neuigkeiten zu CIB Lösungen!
FLISoL, LibreItalia conference, German and Spanish community meetings
In April and May we demonstrated our commitment towards the open source community: dedicating four weekends completely to LibreOffice and its local communities!
15° FLISoL (Festival Latinoamericano de Instalación de Software Libre)
On April 27, CIB attended the the largest Latin American Free Software advocacy event aimed at all types of audiences. For the first time it took place in Munich, Germany.The aim: to share experiences and knowledge about free and open source software with conversations, demos and workshops. Our team contributed with a speech about LibreOffice and the improvements available thanks to the commitment of German public administrations.
The following weekend, from May 3 to 5, our team joined the German LibreOffice community meeting organized by The Document Foundation at Linuxhotel in Essen. The aim: This annual fixed date represents the opportunity to summarize what has been achieved during the last year and to plan new activities.
Focusing on the international rather than just the German market, relationships with other LibreOffice communities are constantly growing. For this reason, from May 11 to 12, we attended the 6thLibreItalia Conference, the annual meeting of the Italian LibreOffice community which took place in Palermo, Sicily. The aim: This year’s edition was not only focused on LibreOffice, but also on other communities like OpenDataSicilia, Mozilla Italia or Ubuntu Italia. The event was a great opportunity to learn more about the different ways to work and interact with the open source communities as well as introducing the new OASIS ODF Advocacy Open Projects.
