Some news about the latest version: a performance-focused version 6.4 is out with some nice changes:

Two caveats: the portable version over on PA has not yet been updated to this version, and I generally recommend the "Still" or extended-release version, but this is still very nice to see. As MS Office 2016 seemed sluggish with the most recent update, this is especially welcome news.

Hello,

I'm using portableapps' Libreoffice and I'm wondering does anybody know how to make other app see it as an installed version? I'm using Citavi and it has options to insert citations directly into Libreoffice. I'm hoping I dont have to install Libreoffice so I can still carry it on my flashdrive

Thanks

When I tested this previously with Zotero, I unfortunately could not get it to interface with the portable version. Self-contained, portable software has loads of advantages but one of the disadvantages is lacking interface with related tools. Given the popularity of LibreOffice portable, you might put in a feature request, but they might see it as too small an audience.
