OpenOffice.org 1.1.5 release candidate

The release candidate for OpenOffice.org 1.1.5 is out. 1.1.5 will be primarily a bug fix release, hence the unimportnant-sounding number, but it does include one new feature: support for OpenDocument. This is the open file format recently approved by OASIS that OpenOffice.org 2.0 will use natively, though it will still open “legacy” OpenOffice.org 1.x documents as well as a greater range of other file formats.
On a slightly related note, Movable Type 3.2 Beta is now available for download. The page also includes information about filing bugs, some basic guidelines for beta testing (which is common sense for anyone used to testing software) and the issues that the MT team at Six Apart are already aware of. Although they do not recommend upgrading your main blog, in case something terrible happens, I’ll probably upgrade anyway at some point.
One final announcement: from 7pm UK time, this site will be down for up to 4 hours while my host fixes a “potential hardware issue affecting the SCSI system”.
