OnlyOffice 7.1: Free office suite for Windows, Linux and macOS released


The free office suite OnlyOffice from Latvia has been released in the latest version 7.1 for the platforms Windows, Linux and macOS. OnlyOffice focuses on texts, tables and presentations and would like to present an alternative to the well-known open source office suites such as LibreOffice and OpenOffice.

The alternative to LibreOffice and OpenOffice

OnlyOffice 7.1 is a modern office suite for creating text, spreadsheets and presentations while doing without a database application. The software scores particularly well with its open source code and multi-platform support for systems with Windows, Linux and macOS. Visually, the suite is based on the industry leader Microsoft Office. A form editor completes the offer.

In addition Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 was also implemented in the free Office suite.

Due to the update of V8, Google's open-source high-performance JavaScript engine, and the implementation of Microsoft Visual Studio 2019, OnlyOffice Desktop Editors v7.1 offers accelerated performance.
