Both LibreOffice and are available on Solaris 11.x (x64) from First you have to setup a repository and then install LibreOffice. Please follow these link to get more information how to register the repository

When the repo is ready just install LibroOffice:
pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g localhosts11
pkg install -v libreoffice52 libreoffice52-desktop-int

Currently the core developers are not working on a Solaris version but there are some developers from OpenIndiana (a Solaris fork) that are trying to get Libreoffice build with gcc.

During OOo times the Solaris port has been compiled with SunStudio which I assume we will no longer support and therefore it needs some time to get it working again.

I think it might resolve similar to the BSD version which is directly distributed by the BSD community.

Well, to be honest, I am not a developer, but AFAIK the sourcecode can be compiled, but I think no official Solaris versions are planned...

I understand that a project is running.Although older versions run on wine they are less stable. XStreamOS has compiled the latest version of Libraoffice on their distribution using the illuminos kernel (opensolaris).

A new version of xStreamOS is due out very shortly.
