OpenOffice.org 2.0 Beta 2 Released
The second beta of OpenOffice.org 2.0 was released on Monday, available in 11 languages for Windows, Linux and Solaris platforms. The project says more languages and platforms will be made available shortly. The release comes ahead of the OpenOffice.org Conference, to be held in Slovenia at the end of next month.
OpenOffice.org 2.0 sports a redesigned interface and better interoperability with other file formats, including Microsoft Office. A new database module has been added, as has support for the OASIS OpenDocument XML file format. An initial beta of the productivity software debuted in March.
