OpenOffice 3 beta 2

Sun Microsystems recently unveiled OpenOffice 3.0b2, a new beta preview release of the next major version of its business productivity suite, adding a number of optimizations, features, and fixes. The new version introduces new regional grammar and numeric standards for Indian customers, as well as refined behaviour of editing filtered rows. Sun also introduced 'y axis' error bars, allowing users to define a range of error for estimated figures.

Table views have been refined, while the integration of CWS odbmacros2 allows the Address Book Data Source Wizard to use a roadmap. The print dialogue now allows users to select which portion of a spreadsheet they wish to print, and printer administration is now done with system tools. Sun Microsystems offers a complete list of features, additions, and fixes on the OpenOffice website.
