Open office not updating
Open adopted a development guideline that future versions of Open would run on free implementations of Java and fixed the issues which previously prevented Open 2.0 from using free-software Java implementations. Eric Filiol of the Laboratoire de Virologie et de Cryptologie de l'ESAT demonstrated security weaknesses, in particular within macros.and had released a free software Java, Open JDK, by May 2007. Work on version 2.0 began in early 2003 with the following goals (the "Q Product Concept"): better interoperability with Microsoft Office; improved speed and lower memory usage; greater scripting capabilities; better integration, particularly with GNOME; a more usable database; digital signatures; and improved usability.The Community Council suggested project goals and coordinated with producers of derivatives on long-term development planning issues.Due to a similar trademark issue (a Rio de Janeiro company that owned that trademark in Brazil), the Brazilian Portuguese version of the suite was distributed under the name Br from 2004, with Br Office.Sun submitted the format to the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) in 2002 and it was adapted to form the Open Document standard in 2005, It was made Open Office.org's native format from version 2 on.
A database management program analogous to Microsoft Access.It could also read a wide variety of other file formats, with particular attention to those from Microsoft Office.Sun open-sourced the Open Office suite in July 2000 as a competitor to Microsoft Office,) and Neo Office (commercial, only for mac OS).Open was primarily developed for Linux, Microsoft Windows and Solaris, and later for OS X, with ports to other operating systems.It was distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License version 3 (LGPL); early versions were also available under the Sun Industry Standards Source License (SISSL).
