    Open office 2.0 released


    Finally, OO 2.0 has been released. The translations might take a while, but you can get the english version at www.openoffice.org. It might take a while for some of the various distribution repositories to catch up, though (if you're using gentoo, it's already in portage, I'm going to emerge it now).

    I really wonder if it's faster than the older versions, which was my biggest annoyance. Anyone try it already?

    After the initial "accept the license, migrate settings" dialog, OOWriter starts up very quick on my system. I don't really use any of the other programs, so I can't say how or if they're improved.

    I think the best improvements (with regards to the release candidates & 1.9.x versions) are bug fixes and faster startup.

    Yeah, it seems very nice. I'm already super impressed with the OOBase. Very much serious competition for Access.

    I like that one too... I was pretty surprised with the database module .

    It's good to know that start up times were an area of improvement for the OOo team during 2.0 development. For now though, I'll stick with the beta version Suse 10 comes with.

    I got an error after over an hour of emerging:
    g++: internal error: Segmentation fault (program cc1plus)

    This is on gentoo, if anyone has any idea? I've been trying google but I get some really old stuff... I have all of the latest versions of everything installed...

    I didn't do any compiling but tried to put together a tgz for my system. I unpacked the rpm's, merged the whole install tree together, and when I fired up OOo it gave me an internal error command (CLI - something of a script that went horribly wrong). I'm just waiting for a good Slackware build .

    iun my eyes OO's lack of support of non RPM based distros is pathetic... so until they come up with something decent I am sticking with abiword...
