Features, Office "The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.0, the free office suite the community has been dreaming of since 2001. LibreOffice 4.0 is the first release that reflects the objectives set by the community at the time of the announcement, in September 2010: a cleaner and leaner code base, an improved set of features, better interoperability, and a more diverse and inclusive ecosystem."

Couple of questions

1. Have they gotten rid of the Java dependencies I remember from older versions of OpenOffice? I don't think most people want to install Java unless they absolutely have to, esp with all the vulnerabilities I've seen reported on the tech news blogs. On the other hand, I don't remember which parts of OO required Java; the database app did IRIC.

2. Speaking of OpenOffice, what has become of that project? Is it gonna fizzle out like a bad fart, as Mozilla did whenever Firefox took off?
