New Collabora version in EGroupware

Collabora Online is a powerful LibreOffice-based online office suite that lets you edit documents from your web browser. It is compatible with all major document, spreadsheet and presentation file formats and can be easily integrated into your infrastructure.

Many users have tried Collabora Online in the EGroupware Cloud and used the free trial period. However, many users wanted a larger range of functions, which was not included in version 2.1.

The Collabora development team has done a fantastic job and released the new version Collabora Online 3.0.

Collabora Online 3.0 includes many new features and improvements. The new version is now integrated in EGroupware and you can test this version in the EGroupware Hosting or NEW the installation packages for your own server. For this reason, we have extended the free trial period until the end of February.

For more information on integrating Collabora Online 3.0 into your own data center, please visit our Collabora page.
