Features, Office LibreOffice is the provisional name of a community-led fork of OpenOffice that is to be developed under the umbrella of a European based non-profit to be named The Document Foundation. This should break OpenOffice free from the shackles of Sun/Oracle, hopefully leading to a faster and more inclusive development cycle.

It might get disbanded. The Document Foundation has already stated that it'll include all the Go-OOO improvements.

It looks like a lot of the OpenOffice people defected over to the new foundation. And since copyrights don't need to be assigned to Sun; they are excepting just about any improvement they can find.
