OpenOffice 1.1 Ready For Download, the open-source group of developers working on the free OpenOffice suite of applications, beat Microsoft to the punch and released the final version of its 1.1 bundle on Wednesday.


OpenOffice 1.1, a competitor to Microsoft in the productivity suite space -- Microsoft will release its newest edition, Office 2003, later this month -- is available now for downloading in Windows, Linux, and Solaris editions.

Version 1.1 includes a word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation maker; includes one-click export of documents to Adobe's PDF format; sports an updated interface; offers enhanced support for Microsoft Office document formats; and loads faster than before, said

"The release of Version 1.1 of is a major achievement for the community," said Curtis Sasaki, the vice president of Sun's desktop division. OpenOffice shares core code with Sun's branded StarOffice application suite.

Versions for Mac OS X, FreeBSD, and the x86 versions of Solaris are still under development, but will be available later this year, said the group.

OpenOffice 1.1 can be downloaded from the Web site.
