The bad news: It's an alpha release with many features not yet functioning. From the website:
This is an alpha test version so that developers and users can find out what works and not, and make comments on how to improve it.
There are a number of things that do not work in this version including, but not limited to:
- You cannot print
- PDF export does not properly work as thetext won't show on the page right
- Starting OpenOffice.org from a shared folder does not work
- Copy and paste does not fully work
- OpenOffice.org will crash after quitting
- Some text is not drawn in places like Impress
- Impress will not recognise multiple monitors
If you want to lend a hand in testing or developing, download it from OpenOffice.org.
