Summary of new features in OpenOffice.org 2.3

Filed under
OOo

Here’s a summary of the features from the 2.3 new features list that I considered the most useful or important to write about.

General

* This is convenient for anyone who prints to multiple printers, all over the world. You can load or ignore the printer settings for your documents. This means you don’t end up accidentally printing to the printer in building 4 which is on the opposite side of the country, just because you were on a business trip there last week and that’s where you last printed your document.

* If your document isn’t wider than the OpenOffice.org window, then it will be centered in the window, not left-aligned.

Writer and Web

* The HTML editor now has a preview feature. Choose File > Preview in Web Browser and the document opens in the default browser.

EXT4 In Linux 4.1 Adds File-System Level Encryption

The EXT4 file-system updates for the Linux 4.1 kernel have been sent in and it features the file-system-level encryption support. Earlier this month we wrote about the newly-published patches for EXT4 encryption support coming out of Google and intended to land in the next major release of Android. Those patches for file-system-level encryption will now be landing upstream with the Linux 4.1 kernel update. Besides this native encryption support for EXT4, the rest of the updates for this merge window pull request equate to mainly fixes. More details via the pull request itself. Read more
