LibreOffice is here, OpenOffice has gone away

libre LibreOffice is here, OpenOffice has gone away

LibreOffice is a productivity suite that is compatible with other major office suites, and available on a variety of platforms. It is free software and therefore free to download, use and distribute.

Beta release:

  • All builds are English-only (en-US). We regret that we were unable to provide other localized versions. We are currently working on an improved mechanism to make localized versions in your language available.
  • The LibreOffice branding and renaming is new and work in progress. You may still see old graphics, icons or websites. So please bear with us. This also applies to the BrOffice.org branding – applicable in Brazil.
  • If you want to extend LibreOffice with new features via Extensions, then the link within the software refers, in error, to the OpenOffice.org Extension website. For Free Software extensions, please use the FSF Extension List at http://fsf.org/openoffice instead.
  • The current LibreOffice beta replaces any existing OpenOffice.org installation, on Windows. Installations should co-exist in the future.

title Firefox 4.0 Beta 3 Released

Mozilla has just released the third beta release of Firefox 4.0. Firefox 4.0 is a major stepup for the popular open source browser. It introduces a host of new features like WebM video support and improved Windows 7 integration, besides featuring a completely revamped skin.

The latest beta adds touch support on Windows 7. This is a big deal as Windows 7 is expected to be used in several upcoming tablet devices. Firefox 4 now supports multi-touch gestures, which can also be leveraged by touchscreen optimised web applications.

It’s an open secret that Firefox has been struggling to keep up with the likes of Opera and Chrome, when it comes to rendering speed. In fact, even Internet Explorer 9 performs significantly better than Firefox in artificial JavaScript rendering benchmarks. Beta 3 includes a a new way of representing values in JavaScript that should make number crunching more efficient.
