OpenOffice, everyone’s favorite free software office suite, released version 3.1 recently. It seems like only yesterday I was downloading StarOffice, what later became OpenOffice.

There are lots of new improvements in this latest release, and while it’s not a night-and-day improvement over previous iterations, it is a sufficient improvement to justify an upgrade.
