Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

A new beta version of the OpenOffice suite was delivered earlier this week. The open source project is the foundation of Sun Microsystems' StarOffice.

Kind of an 'OpenGoose', to StarGoose, if you like.

The language support in Version 1.1 will be particularly welcomed. The new beta features support for "Complex Text Layout and languages such as Thai, Hindi, Arabic, Hebrew."

A full list of features can be found here. For more OpenOffice projects, look here. Macintosh users, go here for the most recent X11 build.

OK, we'll knock it off. This office suite is really getting too useful to deserve any more Howard Hughes gags... ®
