Features, Office Version 2.4 of the OpenOffice productivity suite was released on Thursday, boasting enhancements to all its core components. Possibly the most significant alteration in the new version of the free suite is in the description of file types. The 'OpenDocument' description has been replaced by 'ODF', which stands for 'OpenDocument Format' and is becoming a well-known acronym thanks to rivalry with Microsoft's controversial OOXML format.

Sure. "Para selection" means simply "paragraph selection". The visual presentation of paragraph selection in OOo Writer is not very intuitive. This is best demonstrated on a bullet or numbered list. Try selecting a paragraph in the list in Writer and Word and see for yourself what looks sensible and what does not. Also, see if you can reliably distinguish between selecting only paragraph text (without indents etc.) and the whole para with associated formatting.
