Red Hat dropping support for LibreOffice

Red Hat has announced that it will no longer ship the LibreOffice package as part of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) in future versions. The company is pivoting towards gaps in Wayland, building out HDR support and other refinements required by workstation users. While engineers will continue to maintain LibreOffice in currently supported RHEL versions, they will not be able to maintain it beyond that. Red Hat suggests that users who consume LibreOffice transition to the Flatpak version of the software, which will work better, as engineers will contribute some fixes upstream to ensure that it does. However, maintaining the package will be a significant amount of work and requires a significant number of dependencies.[email protected]/
