This is the most stable build of OpenOffice.org running natively on Mac OS X that I have seen. I haven’t yet had a crash with my basic usage. Mac OS X 10.4 or 10.5 is required.
The improvements include:
- Printing now uses an aqua native print dialog
- Various bugs, crashes, performance, and cosmetic improvements
- The native file picker should work now (though there are 2 unlabeled checkboxes)
- The QuickStarter is now supported on Mac OS X
- Copy and Paste now works in the Hyperlink dialog
- Icons are no longer shown in the menus by default on Mac OS X
- Extentions can now be installed through the GUI
- Improved scrolling when using a scroll wheel
- Real version number is shown in the Mac OS X Finder’s Get Info Window.
- The recent items list in the Apple menu is now populated
- Faster loading and saving of files
- New Start Centre
The downloads are on the extended mirror network, and BitTorrent. Please don’tdirectly link to any of the mirrors, please link to the OpenOffice.org Aqua download page instead.
OpenOffice.org 2.4 (X11), is currently in testing. OpenOffice.org 3.0 will be Aqua only.
