Next Milestone: OpenOffice.org 3.0

OpenOffice.org is looking forward to release OpenOffice.org 3.0 next year (it's still a long time) and yet there are some rumors about features that will be available on the next major release. Ryan posted his article on Cybernet with a big title: OpenOffice 3.0 Wants to Compete with Outlook and it's worthed to read if you want to see the direct goal of OpenOffice.org 3.0. Well, here are the list (it may incomplete):

- New Personal Information Manager
- PDF Import and Export
- Microsoft Office 2007 XML Importing
- Improved Pivot Tables and Solver in Calc
- Web 2.0 Support (Blogging and Wiki)
- Presenter Console with Multi-screen Support
- Vista Integration
- New Chart Engine and Wizard (regression curves, 3D exploded pie, 3D doughnut, 3D smooth lines, etc)
- Improved Notes
- Rectangle Selection in Writer
- New Report Engine for Base
- Improved Extension Management
- Icon Redesign
- Better Chapter Numbering in Writer
- ODF Toolkit
