OpenOffice 3 officially released



Good linux format review of the new features and the overall feel (if you can get to it this morning. The main openoffice.org site is down at the moment. New features include a plugin for pdf import, support for the new Microsoft XML docx style file formats (read only). Writer can show several pages at once in the zoomed out view (with editor notes in the margin). Calc can support 4 times the number of columns and has new collaboration features.

Sounds as though it’s a good all around improvement. The speed is about the same as the last version in the 2.x series in their comparison.
