Filed under
OOo

In the First part of the OpenOffice preview, I talked about the new general features in OpenOffice.org 3.2 like being: easier, more secure, aOpen Office 3.2nd more international.

In this second part, I will explore with you the new features of Chart, Calc and Base (applications within Oo package).

BTW many readers of the previous preview had queries about using grammar checker in OpenOffice. So, I am happy to say that you can use it now by LanguageTools's extension. Visit their official website and there you can get more information of how to use it.

Chart's new features

Filled Net Chart:

A new chart type in OpenOffice.org 3.2 is the Filled Net Chart. It is similar to the regular Net Chart with lines, but in addition to that, the area between the lines and the origin is filled.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
