openoffice 3.3 released

After a long 7 months the OpenOffice.org team have released the latest version of OpenOffice: 3.3 – this follows a couple of weeks after the release of Oracle OpenOffice 3.3.

Updates for StarOffice can be found on the Oracle site: https://sspatch.oracle.com/ (login required – does not require a service plan/agreement, just developer account)

Over 620 bugs were fixed in this feature release, with the release notes here and new feature list here.

Some interesting ones are: the embedding of standard pdf fonts, colored tabs (like excel), inserting objects in charts and improved slide layouts in impress.

Best of all the price is right, free!

You can download from the main site, I had issues initially with a slow download speed, so I selected the torrent option, which was much faster.
