OOo 2.0.3 Released has released third update of their OOo 2.0.x version. This update is released three months after their last update of 2.0.2. You can find the release note of the 2.0.3 for more information about what has been changed since 2.0.2 release. Here are the press release from Louis Suarez-Potts, Community Manager :
All, 2.0.3 is now ready for download, three months since
the release of 2.0.2. This latest release contains a mixture of new
features, bug fixes, and security patches, and demonstrates the Community's determination to maintain its position as
the world's leading open-source office productivity suite.

The security patches fix vulnerabilities that have been found in
internal security audits. Although there are currently no known
exploits, we urge all users of 2.x to upgrade to the new version or
install their vendor's patches accordingly. Patches for users of 1.1.5 will be available shortly. For details of the
security issues fixed, see Security Bulletin 2006-06-29:


Key features of the new release:

* performance improvements: for example, a 23 percent improvement in
certain Calc benchmarks
* further improvements to file format compatibility with Microsoft
Office files
* new email integration features for users wanting to send emails in
Microsoft file formats
* more control over how exported PDF documents will display when
opened in a PDF reader
* support for more languages and improvements in hyphenation and
* support for Intel architecture for Mac OS X plus improved Mac OS X
System integration
* built-in check for updated versions is also the first office suite to support the ISO
approved OpenDocument Format as its native file format. The standard
- ISO/IEC 26300 - defines how office documents (spreadsheets,
wordprocessor documents, etc.) must be stored so that they can be
exchanged with any compliant software package. Its adoption
represents an historic "Freedom of Information" breakthrough for the
IT industry.
