Office: 1.1 released announced first major update to OpenOffice. 1.1 is now final and English version is available for download on Windows, Solaris and Linux. I have been using 1.0.x versions and 1.1 RC's for a while. With every update OpenOffice is getting better and better and better compatability with M$ Office. OpenOffice is now the only office suite on my home machine.
The two new major features for me in 1.1 update are export to PDF format from Writer and export to Macromedia Flash format (.swf) from Impress. Support for export to PDF got better with every update.
