High performance access to file storage

The latest releases of the popular open source OpenOffice.org office suite were signed off today and posted for immediate download.

OpenOffice.org said it was "proud" of its 1.1 versions for Windows (98/ME/NT/2000/XP), Linux (x86 & PowerPC), and Solaris on SPARC.

As with its predecessors, there's no licensing small
print: the software adheres to the terms of the open source licences (LGPL & SISSL), and free for all to use, improve, modify, and to redistribute to anyone.

In addition to the usual word-processor, spreadsheet and presentation applications, the latest release introduces enhancements including a "revolutionary" XML file format, one-click PDF (Adobe Acrobat) export and Macromedia Flash export for presentations and drawings.

Also on the table is enhanced MS Office file compatibility, accessibility support and a faster load times. Supported languages include English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Chinese (simplified & traditional), Korean and Japanese.

Curtis Sasaki, vice president of desktop solutions at Sun Microsystems, praised the open source community's C++ coding efforts for completing the latest 1.1 release, which forms the core of Sun's StarOffice 7. "We've seen community members work for days on end to create translated versions. This kind of enthusiasm helped to make OpenOffice.org one of the leading open source projects today," he said. Nice.

The suite and its source code can be downloaded here. ®
