Posted on: 04/15/2004 03:45 PM

An updated OpenOffice package has been released for Fedora Core

Fedora Update Notification

Name : openoffice.org
Version : 1.1.0
Release : 15
Summary : OpenOffice.org comprehensive office suite.
Description :
OpenOffice.org is an Open Source, community-developed, multi-platform office productivity suite. It includes the key desktop applications, such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation manager, formula editor and drawing program, with a user interface and feature set similar to other office suites. Sophisticated and flexible, OpenOffice.org also works transparently with a variety of file formats, including Microsoft Office.

Usage: Simply type "ooffice" to run OpenOffice.org or select the requested component (Writer, Calc, Draw, Impress, etc.) from your desktop menu. The ooffice wrapper script will install a few files in the user's home, if necessary.

Note that this release does not support GPC polygon clipping, but instead uses libart to do the same thing.

The OpenOffice.org team hopes you enjoy working with OpenOffice.org!

Update Information:

This update fixes a security vulnerability in the neon included in OpenOffice.org (CAN-2004-0179). It also explicitly adds a dependency on Mozilla which has always existed. This dependency will be removed again in the next update since it appears to cause problems however.
