OpenOffice.org 3.3

The latest version on OpenOffice.org, version 3.3 is available for download at http://download.openoffice.org/ and of course it’s free. This popular office productivity suite has been steadily claiming the spotlight and is the preferred suite for over a hundred million users.

OpenOffice.org 3.3 addressed current and future user requirements and the folks working on the project also mentioned this version being faster in start up and overall operation. Below is a brief list of the new elements:
•    Embedded standard PDF fonts
•    New document security and collaboration options
•    Provisions for one million rows in a spreadsheet
•    New Options for CSV (Comma Separated Value) import in Calc
•    Ability to insert drawing objects in Charts
•    Improved slide layout handling in Impress
•    A common search toolbar
A complete list is available at
http://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/features/3.3/ and the security bulletin with full details of the potential vulnerabilities fixed is at http://www.openoffice.org/security/bulletin.html.

If you haven’t taken a look at OpenOffice.org yet, visit “The Case for OpenOffice.org”. This information enables you to see why you should seriously consider giving it a try or at least be aware you have a free option.

As always, post your comments, email me with your topics and let’s have a good time learning together!

New Year's Note



As 2011 starts, I would like to say “Thank you!” for being a valued reader in 2010 and pray you will continue in the future. Last year was very difficult and time was not available to concentrate on meeting the goals for Web Bytes Blog. I pray with the passing of the old and the beginning of this New Year, I would be able to provide you with the type of postings you came to expect from Web Bytes Blog. Right now I am still pressed for time, but prayerfully hope to change this in the very near future.

As always, please submit topics that you are interested in. I am praying 2011 will be a healthy, happy and Christ-centered year for all of us.

In His Service,
Ava
