Celebrating Freedom

Right since the beginning of September we are being litteraly submerged by the number of events promoting OpenOffice.org around the world. Let me summarize those for you; I hope you will see that we have something for everyone these days! 

The first even to come is the NLC Meeting in Bolzano, Italy. This meeting gathers the international community of OpenOffice.org for a bit more than a day and will provide a broad overview of our activities in the development, marketing and localization fields. You are encouraged to register here; you will also find additional information on the same web site.

The second event will also be quite fun, but at the moment we’re missing the actual registration web site; stay tuned though, because we’re inviting you in Paris for the official launch of OpenOffice.org 3.0 and the eighth anniversary of the OpenOffice.org Project. This will be a party, gathering not just the community but the broader circles of technophiles, entrepreneurs and journalists in a magnificent place, courtesy of the Region Ile-de-France.

The last, but not the least, is the actual OOo Con 2008. This year, our official yearly event will take place in Beijing, PRC. Please hurry up to register and make sure you have your Visa; this year will be exceptional, I’m being told.

And of course, in case some of you were still wondering: OpenOffice.org 3.0 is landing. More exactly we have released a RC1, and the RC2 should come soon. As it is something more stable than traditional betas, you should download it and try it; but keep in mind that this is in no way the final version. I have been trying it as I have been trying the betas and even less stable builds; but the RC is definitely worth a look. And it simply rocks on a Mac, has improved looks, features, presentation, and so on. But I don’t wish to make you wait; freedom cannot wait.Stay tuned!
