Windows/Mac/Linux: It hit the servers two days ago, but OpenOffice.org 3.1 is now in official release. The open-source office suite focused on anti-aliased drawing and usability tweaks for this release, which we’ve quickly previewed below.
Anti-aliased rendering for Draw (and charts): That should mean the world for those sick of seeing glaringly computer-rendered edges and intersections in their illustrations, along with the graphs and charts plugged into spreadsheets and text documents. Hard to visualise in a screenshot, but this one’s been zoomed in, and you can see the softer rendering around the circles.
Those are just a few of the 3.1 changes we thought the average user might appreciate, but there are more technical and core-based upgrades—like spreadsheet performance, sorting defaults, and built-in document locking—detailed at OpenOffice.org’s release notes.
OpenOffice.org is a free download for Windows, Mac, and Linux systems. Thanks Mitchell!
