The OpenOffice.org Community are proud to announce the release of
OpenOffice.org 2.1, the latest version of the leading open-source
office suite.

There are a number of important new features for users in this
release. The presentations application, Impress, now supports
multiple monitors, with the presenter choosing where to display the
presentation. The Calc spreadsheet has an improved HTML export
capability, using styles to better recreate in a browser the
appearance of the original spreadsheet. The database application,
Base, has a number of enhancements, including improved support for
Microsoft's Access product. The popular Quickstarter is now available
for GNU/Linux users as a GTK application. OpenOffice.org's impressive
language support is enhanced with five more localisations.

However, OpenOffice.org is not simply a great productivity suite for
end users. OpenOffice.org software technology is also available for
developers, systems integrators, and others to use in their own
applications. OpenOffice.org 2.1 extends support for version control
to extensions, simplifying the management of packages for those
developing extensions.

Version 2.1 is the third release of OpenOffice.org in 2006, and
reflects the Community's commitment to making new features available
to users every few months. To help make this as smooth as possible,
OpenOffice.org 2.1 also includes an improved on-line notifier, which
checks regularly and informs users if a new version is available
(users may choose to disable this option at any time).

OpenOffice.org 2.1 is now available for download free of charge.

to-peer (P2P) system.

software on CD-ROM in many countries.

availability of translations.
