New to the Office suite are the database module called OpenOffice.org Base and native support for the OpenDocument format. The application also sports an overhaul to the user interface.
OO.o Press release:
OO.o may be downloaded here:
Download speeds today are very slow because of the high traffic the sites are receiving, so those interested may wish to try later this week. For those members who do not know about OpenOffice.org, it is a free alternative to Microsoft Office, and is compatible with Office file types. It includes a word processor, spreadsheet, slide show presenter, and now a functional database. Available for Macintosh, Windows, Linux, with many localisations (read languages) available.
