The Apache OpenOffice, the original open source office productivity suite, designed for professional and consumer use, is now at version 3.4.0.

After being adopted into the Apache Foundation and after picking a new name, the Apache OpenOffice project comes with a few new interesting features, such as improved ODT support, including new ODF 1.2 encryption options, new pivot table support in Calc, new graphics, and general improvements in performance and quality.

"With the donation of OpenOffice.org to the ASF, the Foundation, and especially the podling project, was given a daunting task: re-energize a community and transform OpenOffice from a codebase of unknown Intellectual Property heritage, to a vetted and Apache Licensed software suite," - said Jim Jagielski, ASF President and an Apache OpenOffice project mentor.

A complete changelog can be found in the official announcement.
