Features, Office OpenOffice.org 3.1 is 65 days away, and developers are finishing up more than 1000 issues targeted for this Microsoft-Office-killer packing an army of new features, enhancements, and bug fixes. Major new features include antialiased drawings, solid dragging, translucent selections in Writer, improvements in Chart axes and labels, improved grammar checking, macros and full support for SQL including syntax highlighting in Base, and many more.

Macros tied to events in Base - finally! Still a long way to go to match Access, but it's certainly on the right path. SQL colour-syntax is a nice touch, something Access oddly lacks.

Quite exciting really - great job OOo team! ;)

This project was reported dead perhaps Novell employees should focus on developing OpenOffice.org rather than slamming it.

Well, it is the old story that it is easier to bash than do something about the problem. Novell kept whining to me at work wanting to get Novell SLED into the organisation I work for - and yet ignored the legitimate issues that I have with their product, the fact that none of the applications we need in our organisation are available for it, the fact that what I require in the way of features I can enable manually but it would fall outside the support contract.
