OpenOffice.org 3.0 RC4: OOo 3.0 inches closer to a final release
The release notes page for OpenOffice.org 3.0 RC4 looks an awful lot like the release notes page for RC3. And both are virtually unreadable, because there's no section that highlights the major differences. Rather, each includes roughly a zillion little feature updates and bug fixes that set OpenOffice.org 3.0 apart from OpenOffice.org 2.4.1, the most recent stable build.
With that in mind, there are a few important differences between OpenOffice.org 3.0 and OpenOffice.org 2.4.1, including:
- OOo 3.0 includes native support for OS X
- Support for Office 2007 documents
- New multi-page view in Writer
- Multiple users can edit spreadsheets simultaneously
- Ability to add MS Access databases to Writer
