[News] OpenOffice.org 3.1 in Development, StarOffice 9 Released

Hash: SHA1

Some Calc features for 3.1 from RedFlag 2000

,----[ Quote ]
| It was a great pleasure to meet RedFlag 2000's Calc developers at OOoCon in 
| Beijing. 


ODF@WWW - OOo Conf 2008

,----[ Quote ]
| It took me a moment to catch my breath again coming back from this years OOo 
| Conference. The Conference really was a great success and I would like to 
| very much thank all the people (Flora, Peter, Mr. Hu, ...) and companies 
| (IBM, Novell, Redflag CH2000, Sun, ...) who made it happen and who took care 
| of all these little things people come up with during such an event.    


Sun releases StarOffice 9

,----[ Quote ]
| Close on the heels of the release of OpenOffice.org 3.0, Sun Microsystems 
| today announced StarOffice 9, its own version of the popular open source 
| office suite software.  


Review of StarOffice 9

,----[ Quote ]
| In the beginning of this review, I asked why anyone would pay for StarOffice 
| when they can get it free? Apart from supporting a company that helps make 
| OpenOffice better, you basically get clip art, a slightly nicer to look at 
| screen (due to the better icons), and support. That is not a lot, but, then 
| again, $35 is not much either. I think this product is likely to have the 
| most appeal to enterprises looking for support from a large company, but if 
| you need clip art or one of the other features StarOffice offers, it is a 
| great deal. If not, OpenOffice is great, too.       



Photos: Open Office 3 new features

,----[ Quote ]
| The third major release of the OpenOffice.org office productivity suite made
| its appearance on Monday — meeting with such apparent demand that the
| OpenOffice.org servers promptly crashed. At the time of writing on the
| following day, the organisation still has only a cut-down homepage, listing
| mirror sites from which the suite can be downloaded.
| One major reason for the significance of OpenOffice 3 is the fact that it can
| run natively on the Mac — previously, it needed to be run within a windowed
| X11 session. But the suite has had many other enhancements, one of which is
| the welcome screen shown in this screenshot.


OpenOffice.org 3.0 - Stop Paying Microsoft for Bug Fixes!

,----[ Quote ]
| The bottom line is, if you are still using and paying for Microsoft Office,
| you're wasting your money AND you're working too hard. In the business
| climate we have today, I don't see how many people or companies can afford to
| do that.
| Give OpenOffice 3.0 a chance.


Getting The Word Out About OpenOffice.org 3

,----[ Quote ]
| OpenOffice.org 3 is here at last. It's an evolutionary change from 2, not a
| revolutionary one, and if deployed right it could be yet another nibble out
| of Microsoft's big Office cookie. The trick is how to get the word out.
| For a long time, OO.o's depended on four things to gain traction: the fact
| that it's free; a small but significant set of corporate sponsors (Sun and
| IBM, mainly); frustrations with Microsoft Office -- mainly the price tag; and
| word of mouth. The last of those four, I'd put money down as being one of the
| most powerful: the word of someone you trust goes much further than
| advertising.


OpenOffice.org: OpenOffice.org 3.0 breaks through 390,000 downloads in a day!

,----[ Quote ]
| OpenOffice.org 3.0 in its first day in Italy has moved much more bytes
| (4,7TeraBytes), roughly corresponding to 580,000 Firefox’s downloads, while
| during the Firefox Guiness World Record “only” 320,000 downloads were
| actually done.


OpenOffice.org 3.0 now in a browser with Ulteo!

,----[ Quote ]
| The latest and full featured version of OpenOffice.org 3.0 is now available
| through Ulteo.com using a web browser with a single click of a mouse. No
| download or installation process of the productivity suite is required.


OpenOffice.org and archiving

,----[ Quote ]
| At the ODF Workshop last week, a number of the delegates were asking about
| the right way to handle archiving of their documents. Obviously ODF offers a
| baseline file format that promises long-term readability and editability, but
| the question remains of how best to handle files. With the release of
| OpenOffice.org 3.0, there are now two alternatives, and we heard at the
| conference of a third alternative coming in the future from ODF.


Office without the MS

,----[ Quote ]
| I never took to MS Office 2007.
| Having used earlier versions of MS Word for years, I was frustrated when I
| couldn’t easily find the menus or commands where they used to be on its
| newfangled ribbon interface. I also disliked that its applications wrote by
| default to a file format that was unreadable by earlier versions of MS
| Office.
| So this week, when I heard that a new version of my favorite free MS Office
| replacement, OpenOffice, would be released, I greeted the news with some
| reservations.


OpenOffice.org overwhelmed by demand for version 3.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Eager beavers keen to get their hands on the long-awaited arrival of version
| 3.0 of OpenOffice.org are currently unable to download the free, open
| source-flavoured suite of office apps because demand has broken the website.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
