OpenOffice.org 3.1

Hey all you OpenOffice.org enthusiast and new users, I just received an email from the folks over at OpenOffice.org announcing the general availability of OpenOffice.org 3.1 for download. Apparently, this encompasses a significant upgrade to this open source software...free software. I won't give a full write up here of OpenOffice.org since it was written about previously on Web Bytes (http://www.webbytesblog.com/2008/10/this-is-first-of-two-part-series-on.html) but as many of you may know, volunteers work on this software to make and keep it cutting-edge and available free to the general public. Speaking of the general public, quite a few of these updates were voted on by users of previous versions as their most desired features, showing that your voice counts with the people at OpenOffice.org so keep letting them know your wishes when asked . The biggest and most noticeable change is to on-screen graphics with changes to Writer, Calc, Chart, Impress, Base, and some behind the sceen features. For a full listing of the new features and to download 3.1 visit the respective links below.
