LibreOffice 5.4 released with new features for Writer, Calc and Impress

Berlin, July 28, 2017 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 5.4, the last major release of the LibreOffice 5.x family, immediately available for Windows, macOS and Linux, and for the cloud. LibreOffice 5.4 adds significant new features in every module, including the usual large number of incremental improvements to Microsoft Office file compatibility.
Shorter, sweeter documents make interoperability easier
Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”, LibreOffice developers have focused on file simplicity as the ultimate document interoperability sophistication. This makes ODF and OOXML files written by the free office suite more robust and easier to exchange with other users than the same documents generated by other office suites.
Thanks to the efforts of developers, the XML description of a new document written by LibreOffice is 50% smaller in the case of ODF (ODT), and around 90% smaller in the case of OOXML (DOCX), in comparison with the same document

AMD Threadripper Delidded, with a Multi-Core Surprise Under the Hood

One of the topics we’ve been covering in the past month is the behavior of the Core i9-7900X when overclocked, as well as the performance characteristics of the X299 chipset. In both cases, Intel has been criticized. First, for a CPU that traps a great deal of heat below the heatspreader, thanks to the use of thermal paste instead of solder, and second, for X299 board specs that apparently allow motherboard manufacturers to use poor VRM cooling.It’s not clear who’s actually responsible for the latter issue. It could be that Intel didn’t provide the necessary platform documents within a reasonable manufacturing window, or it could be that motherboard manufacturers made their own assumptions about product specs and wound up with VRMs that run too hot for their own on-board cooling solutions. Either way, it’s not a great look.Now, veteran high-end overclocker der8auer has moved over to the Threadripper side of
