1. Have they gotten rid of the Java dependencies I remember from older versions of OpenOffice?


They are working on it, but they are not finished.

2. Speaking of OpenOffice, what has become of that project?


OpenOffice.org is now an Apache project. People are working on it, but to be fair the really cool stuff is happening on LibreOffice. And LibreOffice can pick up the new stuff that might be in Apache OpenOffice.org, because the license allows it.
