OpenOffice Graduates from the Apache Incubator

Columbia, 6/3/14 (LOC)

We're pleased to announce that the ASF Board, at their October monthly meeting, approved a resolution promoting the Apache OpenOffice Podling to an Apache Top Level Project.   The Board also appointed a Project Management Committee (PMC) to oversee the project, with Andrea Pescetti as Chairman.  

Further details on the graduation can be found in this ASF Press Release.  Also available are translations into Italian, German, French, Japanese, Spanish, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Danish, Slovak and Brazilian Portuguese.

The members of the Project Management Committee, along with the many Committers and Contributors now look forward to continued success in developing the award-winning Apache OpenOffice productivity applications. 

What does this mean for users of OpenOffice?  In the near future there will be some changes to the website and mailing lists, as we move out of the Incubator.  We're hoping to avoid any disruptive changes during this transition.  Details of changes will be posted on our wiki.  But aside from these small administrative and infrastructure changes, work on the next release of Apache OpenOffice continues.  And we all look forward to meeting in Sinsheim, Germany, in a few weeks for ApacheCon Europe!


Congratulations AOO!

WOW! I have always used OpenOffice ( or "OxygenOffice", if you will ) and have enjoyed its ease of use. This is a very interesting development. I would never have known beforehand that the OpenOffice Project would become a project of the Apache Software Foundation. Here's to keeping OpenOffice alive and well, and hopefully some fantastic new ideas brought to the table! - Jim S. ( Diehard OpenOffice User )

I hope that means your going to improve this software and put it full of tools. The experience will be good, i really like to have a lot of alternatives. I may ask when will you implement a project solution, like ms project or primavera....good luck
