Not too long ago you may have heard that the popular open source productivity suite, OpenOffice, was acquired by Oracle. Many have perceived this to be the beginning of the end which prompted an open source fork, LibreOffice. A few days ago, LibreOffice released it’s first major version.
This release has a slew of new features, including:
- Import SVG pictures into Draw and edit them interactively
- New easy-to-use dialog box for title pages
- Navigator lets you unfold one heading as usual in a tree view (much like Word’s document navigator)
- Improved slide layout handling in Impress
While I was reading through the new features, I didn’t see anything which I "wowed" me. Granted I am an MS Office user, I still like to see progress made on this this suite as it is a nice alternative for home users.
