This was 6.0.2 and "hold until 6.0.4", looks like a "proper" release, moving to 8.3 target.

Berlin, August 8, 2018 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 6.1, the second major release of the LibreOffice 6 family presented in January 2018, with a significant number of new and improved features:

Colibre, a new icon theme for Windows based on Microsoft’s icon design guidelines, which makes the office suite visually appealing for users coming from the Microsoft environment;

A reworked image handling feature, which is significantly faster and smoother thanks to a new graphic manager and an improved image lifecycle, with some advantages also when loading documents in Microsoft proprietary formats;

The reorganization of Draw menus with the addition of a new Page menu, for better UX consistency across the different modules;

A major improvement for Base, only available in experimental mode: the old HSQLDB database engine has been deprecated, though still available, and the new Firebird database engine is now the default option (users are encouraged to migrate files using the migration assistant from HSQLDB to Firebird, or by exporting them to an external HSQLDB server);

Significant improvements in all modules of LibreOffice Online, with changes to the user interface to make it more appealing and consistent with the desktop version,

An improved EPUB export filter, in terms of link, table, image, font embedding and footnote support, with more options for customizing metadata;

Online Help pages have been enriched with text and example files to guide the users through features, and are now easier to localize.
