OOo

While some office suite users are still waiting for OpenOffice.org 2.0 to arrive, its parent organization has quietly released OpenOffice.org 1.1.5.

The latest OO.o (OpenOffice.org) boasts several new features. Perhaps the most significant of them is that OO.o now supports the importing of OpenDocument documents, spreadsheets and presentations.

OpenOffice.org developers say they are close to issuing a release candidate for the long-awaited OO.o 2.0. A native port of OO.o for Max OS X is also expected to arrive shortly.

Once OO.o 2.0 appears, Sun Microsystems Inc. will release StarOffice 8 in short order.
