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 The 'OpenDocument' description has been replaced by 'ODF', which stands for 'OpenDocument Format' and is becoming a well-known acronym thanks to rivalry with Microsoft's controversial OOXML format.

It was the killer feature for mee, too: I could not for the love of god understand why it was so hidden away beforehand.

That, and the 'set a background image' action in the presentation app.

There are about a bazillion improvements ooo can have without getting into exotic features that about 1% of the userbase cares about.

My next pet peeves are, eg:
- the viewport moving on its own in writer when you scroll back and forth. It somehow every now and then thinks that it should go back to the caret on its own
- eliminate the slow text reflowing that will move all text lines up/down a couple of pixels, one line at a time, while I am reading/editing a page. Either get the algorithm fast enough or stay with the initial, imprecise version
