Two New Releases

This week is full of surprises from OpenSource application. Started by OpenOffice.org who has just released their first BETA release for the upcoming OpenOffice.org 3.3.0 which will be released later this year (i think it would be in October/November if there's no major showstoppers). Ever since Oracle has acquisited Sun, the OpenOffice.org has changed their logo in the splash screen and i think OOo 3.2.1 has been a great release. Many improvements has been integrated on that release and i found many people enjoyed so much. It's faster, better, and more stable than before.

Next is KDE SC 4.5.0. Even though the release date was slipped for a couple of days, it doesn't mean the fun has ended, as finally the final KDE SC 4.5.0 has been released by KDE Team. The announcement said that they have fixed more than 16000 bugs since 4.4.x series, which are an outstanding achievements. I'm looking forward to see the new KSharedDataCache which was supposed to make loading time faster. New Webkit support is also interesting to try.

We are waiting for more releases Bring it
