The first release candidate (RC1) of OpenOffice 3.1 is available to download and includes several new features. The 3.1 update to the free open source office suite includes anti-aliasing to improve the clarity of graphics, such as lines and circles. Improvements have also been made to the comments system in documents, spreadsheets and presentations. The full text of comments can be searched with the updated search facility. Sheets in Calc can now be renamed with a double-click of the mouse. The zoom slider control, a popular addition to Writer in version 3.0, has also been added to Calc.

The 3.1 first release candidate is intended for testing, not for production use and is available to download.

Baring any delays due to major bugs the final version is expected to be released on the 15th of April. A full list of features in the upcoming 3.1 final release can be found here.

Update: The builds page has now been updated to reflect the availability of the release candidate. More details about the release can be found in the OpenOffice 3.1 RC1 release notes.
