OpenOffice 3.0.1 Released
The OpenOffice.org project team have released OpenOffice 3.0.1 to the general public. Version 3.0.1 for Windows was leaked early by FileHippo on Monday, but now is officially available for download from the OpenOffice.org website and its mirrors. The new release of the open source office suite includes several bug fixes to repair some of the more major issues, such as fixing when auto-recovery does not recover the previously auto-saved document version, but the last one which was regularly saved, along with other smaller fixes.
One updated feature is that user dictionaries can now handle up to 30,000 entries instead of the original 2,000. The update also sees one new feature, a new grammar checker, added to the word processing component, Writer.
The update comes in the form of a full copy of the OpenOffice software, and its install footprint is between 135MB and 183MB in size, depending on your operating system. This is an incremental update that fixes many known bugs, but doesn't include a lot of new features; the next major update is version 3.1 is expected at the end of March.
