OpenOffice.org 3.3 Definitely On Its Way

Filed under
OOo

OpenOffice.org 3.2.1 was released on June 4 and a new master workspace was branched off for the upcoming 3.3 on June 5. The code in this branch will be stabilized and later become the product release that will find its way onto your desktops.

With the feature and UI freeze of June 24, only fixes will go into this new OOO330 release code branch. New features will be merged into the DEV300 development code line as 3.3 is readied for release.

On July 19 the first developmental snapshot from OOO330 was released for early testers and developers and it appears 3.3 will have plenty of new features. One added since 3.2 is a new dialog that supports setting passwords to modify Word 97, Excel 97, and ODF documents as well as other small password handling improvements.

  • Regulation can fix security, except you can't regulate security
    Every time I start a discussion about how we can solve some of our security problems it seems like the topics of professional organizations and regulation are where things end up. I think regulations and professional organizations can fix a lot of problems in an industry, I'm not sure they work for security. First let's talk about why regulation usually works, then, why it won't work for security.
