New & Improved Open Office

The community announced the release of version 2.4 yesterday. The new version includes new and improved functionality, general updates and bug fixes in all core components. 2.4 is available for immediate download and the new features are described in the release notes. Among them improved print and PDF handling is worth mentioning, and also support for MS Access 2007. 2.4 is the eleventh release in the 2.x-series, which was originally launched October 2005. There’s strong indications that this will be the last update (bedsides bug fixes) before version 3.0 scheduled for this autumn. 2.4 is at the moment only available in German and English. Other localizations are expected shortly.
