LibreOffice 5.1 to start twice as fast with improved Interoperability with MS Office 2016

LibreOffice 5.1 has officially entered the final stage of development with the release of the Alpha version, which is available to technology enthusiasts and community members for the 1st Bug Hunting Session organized from Friday, October 30, to Sunday, November 1. LibreOffice 5.1 starts twice as fast than the previous version, and adds to the usual incremental interoperability improvements with MS Office file formats (including MS Office 2016) some nice features, such as the Chart Sidebar to change settings in a more intuitive way, an easier workflow with Google Drive, OneDrive and SharePoint, and a Style Menu in Writer which will help user to access this fundamental LibreOffice feature.
