On the heels of Apple's quiet for Mac OS X and Darwin. The open-source office suite features writing, drawing, spreadsheet, and presentation modules as well as read/write compatibility with MS Office documents and a native XML file format. The release offers improved printing support, PDF document generation, full international keyboard support, and improved font support. The final release is expected in the Spring of 2003.
OpenOSX also announced complete product compatibility with Apple's new X11 application, bringing full Quartz graphic acceleration to its product line: OpenOSX Gimp, OpenOSX Grass GIS, OpenOSX Office and OpenOSX FilmGimp. It says that users "will benefit in dramatic performance and aesthetic improvements when using Apple's X11 application in place of OroborOSX and/or XDarwin."
