Hash: SHA1

Municipality saves 1 million per year

,----[ Quote ]
| Michel van der Linden is head of IT in Municipality of Gribskov in Denmark. 
| In this article he explains how the municipality changed from Microsoft 
| Office to OpenOffice some years ago. Initially they saved about two million 
| Danish Kroner and later one million per year.   



50 million

| Five months (163 days) since release, and OpenOffice.org 3.0 yesterday
| clocked up its 50 millionth download via http://download.openoffice.org. OK,
| we know there are many good reasons why OpenOffice.org should be on
| everyone’s desktop, but thi is still an extraordinary achievement.


New Chart features in OpenOffice.org 3.1

| Interested in the new Chart features that will be available in OOo 3.1? Have
| a look...


Making menus a little nicer

,----[ Quote ]
| So now that code freeze for 3.1 is almost upon us, work for 3.2 begins. As a
| first little step I looked through some old issues and noticed Issues 42227
| and 48965 which I must admit went a little under in the load of my intray.
| The problem described in there is basically an aesthetic one: currently menus
| reserve two "columns" for checkmarks and item images, because menu items can
| be checked as well as have an image and both should be reflected of course in
| the display. But this creates a large area where most of the time nothing
| appears on the left of the menu, making the menu look clunkier than
| necessary.


New Features in OpenOffice.org 3.1, an Early Look

| 1000 issues targeted for this Microsoft-Office-killer packing an army of new
| features, enhancements, and bug fixes.
