The Document Foundation, which developed LibreOffice, began charging for Mac App Store releases. LibreOffice is a branch of OpenOffic and is currently the most popular open source office software. It has an enterprise version, LibreOffice Enterprise, which provides paid support, and a free community version, LibreOffice Community. Starting this week, the foundation announced a fee of €8.99 for the version on the Mac App Store to support the development of the project. macOS users can still download the free version from the Foundation’s website. The free version may actually be better than the app store version because it supports Java, and the apple app store forbids dependencies, so the store version doesn’t include Java.
