Observations from m21 de OOo

Talking with one of the prime members of the spanish community in OpenOffice.org we discover some of the great improvements over the developer snapshot release found in OpenOffice.org. Here are some of the notes:

  • State of OOo performance on multiple OS is great
  • Insert -> Functions is also greatly improved
  • Conditional text features
  • Management of DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange) is more powerful
  • Fields and datasource inserts is also more polished.
  • Track changes
  • Solver
  • Calc has now 1024 columns

New features also show up like PDF editing however is on pretty early stage of development. So far seems that the new versions are raliying up to the task.
