8 Essential OpenOffice Extensions

,----[ Quote ]
| OpenOffice is already a complete desktop office suite that is at par in terms 
| of features with the proprietary Microsoft Office. However, its functionality 
| can still be improved by utilizing useful extensions that are easily 
| available.   



OpenOffice.org in Education: Adoption is Gaining Momentum

,----[ Quote ]
| In the coming weeks and months, I hope to share with you a number of these
| success stories.  I hope these stories, in part, will let everyone in
| academia know that they are not alone when it comes to their commitment and
| desire to utilize OpenOffice.org to better the lives of their students
| through education.  I hope it inspires other educators to share their untold
| stories, as well as open source project volunteers to keep up the good work
| they often thanklessly perform each and every day.


Fresh Wind at Work: OpenOffice 3.1

,----[ Quote ]
| Cute but astute: the new minor version of OpenOffice can do more than ever,
| such as cast shadows, position chart axes and provide structured
| conversations through comments.


Why Do I Use OpenOffice?

,----[ Quote ]
| In addition, using OpenDocument Format as the default file format helps
| future-proof my documents. After the current producers of “office software”
| all move on to something else, will you have the right to create a program to
| read and manipulate your data in the formats it was saved in? Will you be
| forced to buy a license from someone? Or perhaps be required to use a
| particular operating system?


OpenOffice.org 3.1 arrives, improves user interface

,----[ Quote ]
| The first major release of the 3.0 series of open source office suite
| OpenOffice.org, version 3.1, is now available with big improvements in
| usability and the user interface.


OpenOffice.org 3.1: Looking Sharp

,----[ Quote ]
| The updated free office software suite includes more than 20 major changes to
| its five core applications. Perhaps the most striking new feature, however,
| is its use of anti-aliasing to render sharper charts, line art, and other
| graphical elements.


OpenOffice 3.1 Gets a Makeover

,----[ Quote ]
| With 60 million downloads of its last version, open source office software
| aims to look better.


OpenOffice 3.1: The new features

,----[ Quote ]
| Compared to its predecessors, OpenOffice 3.1 offers a whole range of new
| features. Instant eye catchers are the improved anti-aliasing for graphics,
| better chart functionality, and the new text highlighting in Writer. However,
| inconspicuous new features like custom document property fields and the
| OpenOffice User Feedback Program are just as interesting.


OpenOffice 3.1 officially arrives

,----[ Quote ]
| After making its appearance on various mirrors, OpenOffice 3.1 has now
| officially been released.


Change Impress to improve all of OOo

,----[ Quote ]
| If a proposed new concept works for Impress (that means that it stands up to
| the tests and usability evaluations in the prototyping phase of Project
| Renaissance) then that concept will be adopted for ALL of the office suite!


New Chart features in OpenOffice.org 3.1

,----[ Quote ]
| 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

,----[ Quote ]
| OpenOffice.org 3.1 is 65 days away, and developers are finishing up more than
| 1000 issues targeted for this Microsoft-Office-killer packing an army of new
| features, enhancements, and bug fixes.
