List of features of OpenOffice.org 3.2

,----[ Quote ]
| As you could read with the last developer 
| milestone ( DEV300m60) we reached the date to 
| branch the code line for the OOo 3.2 release. The 
| strings for translation were extracted from this 
| milestone and were integrated into Pootle. Also 
| the last features were integrated. So all teams 
| can start to do their work to get released a full 
| localized and stable build of OOo 3.2 at the end 
| of November '09.


Open-Source Software: An All-Star Lineup

,----[ Quote ]
| OpenOffice is the undisputed king of open source 
| office software. Boasting most of what you get 
| with the big commercial packages -- a word 
| processor, spreadsheet, and presentation 
| application -- the individual applications in 
| OpenOffice are even compatible with the file 
| formats used by MS Office and other leading fee-
| based software.



Security and Privacy Feature Improvements in upcoming OpenOffice.org 3.2

,----[ Quote ]
| Further improvements in OOo 3.2 and/or the ODF 1.2
| specification
| ODF 1.2 now allows for using different encryption
| algorithms, and all details about the algorithms used need
| to be documented in the manifest.xml (which is the reason
| that the manifest.xml itself can't be encrypted). These
| ODF enhancements have been submitted to the OASIS ODF TC,
| and OOo 3.2 already implements them. Please note that this
| only means OOo would put all needed information into
| manifest.xml. It doesn't mean that OOo would have new
| built-in encryption algorithms yet.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
