+With each new release of OpenOffice, users are strongly encouraged to upgrade, to benefit
from new features, bug fixes and security improvements. After a new major release, 
+the Community supports legacy releases for a period of time to allow users to upgrade and
migrate.  At a later time these legacy releases are declared to be 
+["End-of-Life"](http://www.openoffice.org/development/releases/eol.html) and are no longer
suported.
+
+We have detected that you are running an unsupported version of OpenOffice.org.  We recommend
that you upgrade to the current version, 
+[Apache OpenOffice 4.0](http://www.openoffice.org/download).  Apache OpenOffice 4.0 is available
for download in [many languages](http://www.openoffice.org/download/other.html).   
+
+If your preferred language is not available yet, the following options are available:
+
+  - Download Apache OpenOffice 4.0 in another language that you are familiar with.
+  - Continue running an unsupported version of OpenOffice.
+  - Sign up for our [announcements mailing list](http://openoffice.apache.org/mailing-lists.html#announce-mailing-list)
so you will be notified of new languages and releases when they become available.
+  - Volunteer to [help translate](http://openoffice.apache.org/translate.html) OpenOffice
into your native language.
+
+Apache OpenOffice relies on its community of volunteers to write code, test, support and
translate OpenOffice.  We have many translations that are 90%+ complete and require only
+a few hours of volunteer effort to complete. If you can help, send an email to [L10@openoffice.apache.org](mailto:
L10@openoffice.apache.org) and tell us what language you can help with.

-<h2>OpenOffice.org 2.x series</h2>
 
-<p><em>22. December 2009:</em> A few weeks before the upcoming release
of OpenOffice.org 3.2, the OpenOffice.org Community is formally announcing
-"End-Of-Life" (EOL) status for the legacy version 2.x series of its productivity suite.
-<br/><br/>
-With each new release, users are strongly encouraged to upgrade, to benefit from new features,
bug fixes and security improvements.
-After a new major release, the Community supports legacy releases for a period of time to
help users with upgrading and migrating.
-With version 3.x being available for more than 15 months now, the Community has decided it
is time to cease maintaining the 2.x software.
-As a consequence, OpenOffice.org 2.4.3 will be the last release of the legacy 2.x series
and no subsequent bugfixes or security releases will be made
-available.
-<br/><br/>
-This EOL policy only applies for the Community version of OpenOffice.org obtained via the
-<a href="http://download.openoffice.org" title="OpenOffice.org Download">download website</a>.
Linux distributors and service companies often have their own
-product lifecycle policies and might support the productivity suite for a shorter or longer
period of time.

period of time?

 <b>A:</b> Releasing bugfixes, patches and security improvements for older releases
takes a lot of resources. Releasing legacy versions is as much effort as
 releasing current versions, with localization and QA being involved. As most users upgrade
to a new version in a short period of time, and as rollout cycles
 in companies usually last from 3 to 12 months, the Community needs to concentrate its resources
where they are most effective, in new versions.
