Danish Municipality of RÃdovre Expects Open Office To Reduce Costs Over Long Term

,----[ Quote ]
| The municipality announced on 6 November 
| 2009 that, as from the next week, it will 
| start to use OpenOffice, alongside its 
| proprietary alternative. However, the 
| municipality plans to fully move to 
| OpenOffice eventually.
| RÃdovre has installed OpenOffice on seven 
| hundred desktop PCs.
| The municipality's move to OpenOffice was 
| announced at the annual OpenOffice 
| conference 'OOoCon 2009' which took place 
| in Orvieto, Italy, from 3 to 6 November 
| 2009. At the conference, Leif Lodahl, a 
| volunteer project manager for the Danish 
| OpenOffice project, gave a presentation on 
| the integration of existing document 
| management tools with OpenOffice: "Moving 
| to OpenOffice improves control over the 
| documents and allows the municipality to 
| automatically convert relevant documents 
| to PDF."

ODFDOM 0.7 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm pleased to report that the 0.7 release of the ODF Toolkit Union's ODFDOM
| library has just been released. This is an open source (Apache 2.0 license)
| Java toolkit for programmatically reading, writing and manipulating ODF
| documents. The code is 100% Java and does not require that you have
| OpenOffice or any other ODF editor installed. It operates directly on the
| document itself.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
