OpenOffice.org 3.1
OpenOffice.org 3.1 could be released by the end of the month. But if you can't wait that long for the next version of this open source office suite, you can download the release candidate which was launched yesterday. It's available for download from a number of mirror sites, or you can find the Windows installer at FileHippo.

OpenOffice.org includes a word processor, spreadsheet application, database utility, presentation application, and several other programs. Version 3.1 comes with a number of bug fixes, improvements, and new features. Here are just a few:
  • Anti-aliasing for improved graphics
  • Easier dragging of graphics
  • Improved file locking to prevent other users on the network from overwriting your changes to a document
  • Support for overlining as well as underlining
  • Ability for different editors to "reply" to comments in a Writer document
  • Rename Calc sheets with a double click
  • Zoom slider control in the Calc status bar similar to the one in Writer
You can find a complete list of changes in the release notes.
