Good looks, security mark OpenOffice 2.2 release

Filed under
OOo

The OpenOffice.org community today announced version 2.2 of the popular open source office suite, a release it hopes will make further inroads into the Microsoft Office user base.

While the previous version, OOo2.1, worked well on Microsoft's new Vista operating system, this version is the first release to begin making use of some of the new cosmetic changes included in Vista. Among these is the use of new dialogue boxes.

For Apple users there is good news with a smaller download and install size, always welcome in an application this size. OOo version 2.2 requires Mac OS X 10.4.x running X11.

Also on the table this time around is a series of security enhancements following a spate of vulnerabilities reported in the media over the past couple of weeks.

Full Story.
