Open Office 2.4 Release Postponed until March 26

Mar 17, 2008

The Open Office project has again postponed the release date for the next version of its office software package.

In a message to the Releases mailing list Sun’s Martin Hollmichel said that the delay had been caused by critical bugs. To the more precise, these are Bug 87025 (drag-and-drop based copying in Writer does not work) and Bug 87034 (modified OLE objects are not updated in the Open Office document).

Release candidate 6 is due early this week and is said to solve the problems. Hollmichel quoted March 26 as the expected release date for the final version of Open Office 2.4.

The team has additionally decided to release version 2.4.1 to allow for improvements. This includes fixing bug 86894, which relates to highlighting of inserted spreadsheet cells.
