Open Office 3.3 supports new custom properties handling, embedding of standard PDF fonts, support for up to one million rows in a spread-sheet, a common search tool-bar, and many other changes. The changes to this GPLv3-licensed office suite are detailed in their development documentation
The free Open Office can be downloaded at OpenOffice.org
