New Apache OpenOffice sites

By rgaloppini

Over the last fours years I’ve been lucky enough to be paid for volunteering for Apache OpenOffice, something I’ve personally shared on my own blog. And now, wearing my SourceForge hat, I am here to shine some light on the latest Apache OpenOffice developments.

Take a look at these new extension, template, administrative, and search options:

  • aooe_homeThe new extensions home has a strong focus on the search box, a brand new logo, and an overall redesigned look and feel, where all menu items have icons for better readability.



  • aoot_homeThe new templates home is similar to the Apache OpenOffice Extensions site, with a similar redesigned look and feel and different colors to highlight which application a given template can be applied to.



  • aooe_creationThe new administrative interface includes a navigation bar at the top for Extensions’ authors that links to the most common actions. We also improved the GUI, making it more intuitive for uploading extensions.



  • aooe_searchSearch has been completely redesigned too. It’s worth mentioning that there are other changes sprinkled here and there, including an alert for outdated extensions that provides an easy way to contact the original author.


Remember to be sociable and share the good news!
