ONLYOFFICE 7.1 It is the new version of the open source office suite that for a few years has been disputing LibreOffice to a certain extent, although even though they are dedicated to the same thing, they both have different approaches.
Thus, ONLYOFFICE was originally developed as an alternative to the Google Docs model, a self-managed cloud office suite, while standalone editors for the desktop -or mobile apps- came later. Be that as it may, ONLYOFFICE today offers both extremes and the release of ONLYOFFICE 7.1 covers them equally.

These formats, in turn, can be easily converted to each other or to other document formats such as DOCX.
ONLYOFFICE Docs 7.1 includes many other improvements in the form of interface tweaks and new options in the three applications that make up the suite, word processor, spreadsheets and presentations, as detailed in the official announcement. You can see many of those improvements in the following presentation video.
Finally, ONLYOFFICE Docs 7.1 stands out for offering ARM architecture support. Installation on ARM devices can be done via Docker or Deb and RPM packages.
As for ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors 7.1, the underlying news is the same, since these desktop editors They are just the same web applications, wrapped for use on the desktop. (not exactly Elctron, but first cousin) That said, they integrate moderately well and their performance is not bad either, although it can be improved and this new version affects that.
