OpenOffice is back

Since Oracle gave the Open Office project in June 2011 to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF),
the free office suite has been quiet. Now the project team under the new name of version 3.4
has Apache Open Office (AOO) for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X (Intel) enabled. The previous
extension ". Org" has been deleted.

Compared to the version 3.3 released in January 2011, there are numerous improvements. With
some tweaking to the code word processing, spreadsheet, presentation software and databases
now run faster than its predecessor. By AES256 encryption, documents can now better protect
against unauthorized access.

In the spreadsheet, the previous pilot data in pivot table is renamed and the restriction
to 8 fields in the Layout dialog was removed. Other enhancements include revised Im-/Exportfilter
for delimited text files (CSV), additional options in the equation editor and Math in the
PDF export. All changes are in the Release Notes document.

<thanks to Google Translate and my own imperfect knowledge; and thanks mostly to the actual
release notes.>
