Written by Michael Larabel in Free Software on 15 September 2007 at 12:08 AM EDT. 2 Comments
The official release of 2.3.0 is scheduled for Monday, September 17, but it is available already. 2.3.0 introduces a number of new features and changes for all components. There is a new charting wizard, the ability to create Wiki pages using a new Filter in the Writer, and performance improvements are among the many changes found in the 2.3 branch.

The OpenOffice Wiki places the release on September 17 and there are not yet any references from the main website to this new version, but can be found on mirrors driven (such as OSUOSL). Just head on over to a mirror and through the Mozilla Bouncer interface choose along with your platform and locale. 2.3 is available for Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, and Windows.

The next release, version 2.3.1, should be out on December 4, 2007. Look for the official 2.3.0 release announcement on Monday. If you missed it, IBM announced this week that they would be joining the community (press release).
