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.
