LibreOffice - Alter Version Number


  • Community Moderator

    I had LibreOffice version 6.1.4 installed and today I installed an update to 6.1.4 Rev. 2.
    This is detected by VulnDetect as 6.1.4.
    So I looked in Help -> About and saw the following version number: 6.1.4.2.

    Same for an older version of LibreOffice that I have also installed.
    Detected version by VulnDetect: 6.0.6.
    Displayed version inside the app: 6.0.6.2

    Tell me if you need more information.

    Suggestion
    Please show the version number in 4 digit format.
    You see this is needed (there are two different versions available: 6.1.4 and 6.1.4.2)

    I know it is complicated to find a solution that fits all products.
    But I would use the version number displayed in the app in Help -> About

    I can see you are right. Everywhere on the site they seem to refer to versions with three levels only, but the installer and the product itself does use all four.

    I will give it some thought, as this is different from what is used on their security page:
