Next Milestone: 3.0 is looking forward to release 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 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
