OpenOffice.org got me an early Christmas present this year. They released version 2.1.0 and included the feature I wanted most, presentation mode in Impress. Some call it multi monitor support for Impress, either way it is most practical for giving a presentation. It allows you to use your laptop and show on the external monitor, or projector, the slides, while you can see on your screen the slides plus your own notes and more. Thank You Santa, eh OpenOffice.org team!
Before I forget, OpenOffice.org 2.1.0 also includes the following:
- Improved HTML export in OpenOffice.org Calc
- Enhanced Microsoft AccessÂ® support for OpenOffice.org Base
- Even more supported languages
- Automatic notification of available updates
- More extensions
