Test drive OpenOffice.org 3.0

Filed under
OOo

OpenOffice.org 3.0, the next major release of the open source office suite, is scheduled to be released in September. Which means that it is pretty much guaranteed to be included in the next release of Ubuntu 8.10, Mandriva 2009 and Fedora 10, all of which are due out in October. Until then it is easy enough to test out the beta releases of OpenOffice 3.0 without removing your existing 2x OpenOffice installation. Installing OpenOffice 3.0 beta also means you can test out Sun’s PDF import extension which is also still in development.

What to expect
OpenOffice 3.0 has a number of new features including a better “notes” feature which lines up notes down the side of the page. Adding and deleting notes in this format is easy to do and in initial testing worked rather well.

The upcoming release also includes a better zoom function. Zooming in on, or out of, pages is done using a slider in the bottom bar. Zooming out shows multiple pages on a single screen which a a nice-to-have.
