LibreOffice Rolls Out the Updates, Latest 3.3.2

\r\n\r\n\r\nLibreOffice developers releasing updates with rapid pace, since the inaugural release two months ago, LibreOffice has seen two minor version updates as well as associated developmental releases, just a couple of days ago.\r\n\r\n\r\nLibreOffice 3.3, the fork of OpenOffice.org 3.x, was released on January 25 to a jubilant reception. It built upon the years of work that made OpenOffice.org an excellent office suite. Many OpenOffice.org developers defected when Oracle’s strategy became suspect. With the many same talented developers and supporting companies now backing LibreOffice, it is well positioned to challenge OpenOffice.org in Linux distributions and user desktops. It already pulls ahead in some polls and has replaced OOo in several popular distributions.\r\n\r\n\r\nVersion 3.3 brought nice improvements over OpenOffice.org, one of which is Scalable Vector Graphics support. Another is the long awaited support for MS Works formats and improved Word Perfect support. One of the most interesting new features is the Experimental Mode, which allows one to test upcoming features.\r\n\r\n\r\nLibreOffice 3.3.2 was released in March 22. This release was primarily a stabilizing update bringing further bug fixes and code clean-ups. The announcement also said this release sets the stage for the next major release, 3.4.0, expected May 2.\r\n\r\n\r\nVersion 3.3.1 was released on February 23 and brought some bug fixes, new icons, and extra language additions.\r\n\r\n\r\nSome of the more interesting changes include dictionary updates, fixed incorrect cursor navigation, fixed the occasional blank first slide in Presentation, fixed Writer losing ticks in check boxes, fixed erratic paint rendering in Impress, and added a workaround for IM problems with KDE4 integration.\r\n\r\n\r\nThe next release of LibreOffice should arrive with the developmental snapshots leading up to 3.4.0. The first beta is expected to appear any day now and release candidates will start appearing after April 4. 3.4.1 is due May 23.\r\n\r\n\r\nDownload LibreOffice 3.3.2\r\n\r\n\r\nFeatures\r\n\r\n

First Look: Nokia Astound Smartphone

\r\n

Nokia Astound Smartphone\r\n

\r\n

Mobile handset maker Nokia Corp. launched smartphone Nokia Astound, available exclusively from T-Mobile USA, the unit of Germany’s Deutsche Telekom AG (DTEGY.PK: News ), since April 6. The Astound has a sleek stainless-steel design that features an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash and 720p HD video capture, a 3.5-inch capacitive touch AMOLED display, free turn-by-turn navigation from Nokia and access to thousands of free and paid apps via Nokia’s Ovi Store.\r\n

\r\n

With the latest commercial version of Ovi Maps, the Astound provides free voice-guided, turn-by-turn navigation in almost 100 countries in 46 languages. Additional countries and languages are available to download free from Nokia.\r\n

\r\n

Mark Slater, vice president of sales, Nokia, stated, “As millions more consumers make the switch to smartphones, Nokia is proud to offer an alternative that is not only easy and fun to use, but is also very sexy and sleek, unlike anything in its price point.”\r\n

\r\n

The phone itself is quite attractive with a white and silver color scheme and slim profile. While the Astound might be attractive on the outside, Symbian is still, well, Symbian. Although it is a powerful and full-featured platform, its whole aesthetic feels dated and static compared to Android 2.3, Apple’s iOS, and even the latest version of RIM’s BlackBerry OS. Thankfully, this is the most recent version of Symbian S^3 so you get a portrait QWERTY keyboard and a browser improved from the previous versions.\r\n

\r\n

Nokia officials had no comment on its relationship with Microsoft, but they did hint that there will be more Symbian phones to come. The Astound is available online as well as at T-Mobile stores.

Nokia unveils 2 smartphones, Symbian refresh

\r\n

\r\n

Nokia, the world’s largest phone maker by volume, unveiled on Tuesday two new smartphone models running on a new version of its Symbian software platform. The new models, the E6 and the X7, will go on sale for 340 euros ($491.6) and 380 euros respectively excluding subsidies and taxes, later this quarter. In February, Nokia’s new chief executive Stephen Elop dumped Symbian software — which lost most of its lead on the smartphone market last year — saying the company would instead use Microsoft Corp’s unproven software as its primary platform.\r\n

\r\n

Elop compared Symbian to a burning platform in a widely leaked internal memo, saying it was not good enough for Nokia’s future. On Tuesday Nokia unveiled a new version of Symbian software, with new icons, improved text input, faster Internet browsing and a refreshed Ovi Maps application.\r\n

\r\n

“Several Nokia executives have attempted to walk back from Elop’s February comments and limit the damage he did to Symbian products,” said Tero Kuittinen, analyst at MKM Partners.\r\n

\r\n

“It’s just a bit too late to put Humpty Dumpty back together. Developers are bailing out in droves,” he said.\r\n
