NeoOffice 2.2.1 update

by Robert Daeley

The NeoOffice developers have released version 2.2.1 of their office suite, bringing some new features that should be quite welcome for their users:

  • Support for the native Mac OS X spellchecker
  • Support for the native Mac OS X address book
  • Support for high resolution printing
  • Opening, editing, and saving of most Microsoft Office 2007 Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents
  • The latest features from OpenOffice.org 2.2.1

They have also announced the release of the new RetroOffice 2.2.1:

RetroOffice is an X11 application based on OpenOffice.org that has integrated many of the native Mac OS X features from NeoOffice. While very few users will find RetroOffice useful, the following groups of users may find it useful:

  • NeoOffice testers and support volunteers that use it for troubleshooting purposes
  • Mac OS X users that prefer using an X11 application instead of a native Mac OS X application

NeoOffice would be a great choice, if it could run as fast as the Aqua beta of OpenOffice. Do they have any plan to switch from Java to Cocoa? ;)

That's the main OpenOffice group working on a native port. For those who are unfamiliar, this is a separate project, unrelated to NeoOffice.

In my opinion, NeoOffice should really join forces with the main OpenOffice group. I don't see any reason to stay Java as long as NeoOffice runs only on a mac. I think we deserve to have an OOo that runs as slick as the Windows variant.
