New release of the free office suite OpenOffice.org offers additional
The OpenOffice.org Project today released version 2.0.1 of its office
suite. Eight weeks after the major release 2.0 was published, a first
update is available that brings along new features and remedies minor
The main focus of the new release was correcting bugs, in particular in
localisations. However, a number of new features were added as well. So,
for example, it is now possible to disable and hide particular
application settings, which comes in handy for central administration in
networks. Moreover, a new keyboard shortcut permits the user to return
to a saved cursor position. The bullets and numbering feature has been
expanded, and a new mail merge feature is available.
Last but not least, Macedonian has been added as an official language.
Several other localized versions are also available, such as Turkish,
Russian, Slovenian, Hungarian, Estonian and Bulgarian.
The OpenOffice.org Project is an international community of volunteers
and sponsors including founding sponsor and primary contributor, Sun
Microsystems. OpenOffice.org develops, supports, and promotes the
open-source office productivity suite, OpenOffice.org. The project can
