Comparison

New release for Apple's macOS 11 (Big Sur) - Also with fixes for Linux and Windows

Dear Apache OpenOffice® Users,

Thank you for your interest in Apache OpenOffice and your on-going support over the years. You may have heard (e.g., through our support forums) that OpenOffice has problems with Apple's new macOS 11 (Big Sur).

When opening modern Microsoft Office Documents (files that end with .docx, .xlsx, .pptx, for example), OpenOffice crashes. There is no workaround at this point, but we are going to fix the issue soon.

We would be happy to give you more details if you want to help us with testing. Just write a mail to the developers mailing list dev-AT-openoffice.apache-DOT-org.

The main reason is to fix the bug on Big Sur. We will also include some other minor fixes in the release, so all platforms can benefit from the new release. We know that this is a pressing issue to our Mac users, so you can expect the release soon on our download web page.

In order to identify the issue we took a closer look at our build to exclude any issues with an error in prior releases. Next, we updated the build to a newer SDK issue to exclude any issue in our support structures. We believe that our upcoming version 4.2.0 (which is not yet production-ready) is not affected by this issue. In an effort over Christmas a comparison took place between the 4.2.0 and 4.1.8 versions to locate the issue. We have found the code change that solves the crash on Big Sur.

We are testing the solution at this point. If you want to join the test of the new version of this fix, drop an e-mail in English to the developers mailing list dev-AT-openoffice.apache-DOT-org. The more environments we test the sooner we can release.

The OpenOffice project thanks Jim Jagielski for his endless effort during Christmas time, and the French forum users who supported the development effort with dedicated testing.

We wish you a good and healthy start into the new year.

All the best and stay tuned.

300 Million Downloads of Apache OpenOffice

With great pleasure we have seen that Apache OpenOffice® was downloaded more than 300 million times from 2011 until now, October 24th. Here included are more than 200 million downloads of all releases in the 4.1.x branch. This was reached with our partner SourceForge.net.
Of course there are some other ways like alternative servers hosted by Apache itself. So, actually we don't know these numbers but it is for sure that we are already a lot above the 300 million downloads line. And when we include also the copies on CDs and DVDs then we can add another big number on top.
Currently we are very busy with baking our next release: Apache OpenOffice 4.1.8. Nevertheless, it is worth taking a few minutes to celebrate this milestone.
The following are a few statistics to show some aspects of the numbers.

The Apache Software Foundation Celebrates 20 Years of OpenOffice®

Leading Open Source office application and personal productivity suite under development as a community-led Apache® Project for the past 8 years

Wakefield, MA —14 October 2020— The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today the twenty-year anniversary of OpenOffice®, the last eight of which as an Apache® Top-Level Project.

'It’s inspiring to see so many dedicated people from around the world volunteer their time to mentor, contribute code, test issues, moderate mailing lists, help on forums, translations, marketing and more to keep making this great product better and available for millions of users,' said Carl Marcum, Vice President of Apache OpenOffice. 'OpenOffice is more than just software. It’s a great community that I’m glad to be a part of.'

With more than 300 million downloads, Apache OpenOffice is used by countless individuals, organizations, and institutions around the world who are seeking a reliable, robust, and freely-available Open Source office document productivity suite. Apache OpenOffice features the following applications for Windows, macOS and Linux:

  • 'Writer' word processor;
  • 'Calc' spreadsheet tool;
  • 'Impress' presentation editor;
  • 'Draw' vector graphics editor;
  • 'Math' mathematical formula editor; and
  • 'Base' database management program.

Apache OpenOffice supports more than 120 languages, 41 of which are officially maintained and released by the Project. Apache OpenOffice is the productivity suite of choice for governments seeking to meet mandates for using ISO/IEC standard Open Document Format (ODF) files.

Originally created as 'StarOffice' in 1985 by StarDivision, who was acquired by Sun Microsystems in 1999. The project was open-sourced under the name 'OpenOffice.org', and continued development after Oracle Corporation acquired Sun Microsystems in 2010. OpenOffice entered the Apache Incubator in 2011 and graduated as an Apache Top-level Project in October 2012.

'At Apache OpenOffice we are very excited about 20 years of OpenOffice,' said Marcus Lange, ASF Member and Apache OpenOffice Committer since the project first arrived at the ASF. 'Countless users, developers and friends have made it possible that we can today celebrate this incredible anniversary. Their commitment makes me believe that we will see many more years of this great Open Source productivity suite.'

'The need and, in fact, the demand, for a permissively licensed Open Source office suite, available to the masses and not just the privileged few fortunate enough to have the latest hardware and software, has never been greater within the last two decades,' said Jim Jagielski, ASF co-Founder and Apache OpenOffice incubating mentor. 'Apache OpenOffice exists to provide essential functionality, with as few licensing restrictions as possible, to the world at large. It is truly a noble mission, and I am honored to be a small part of it.'

'As a long-term user, I joined the project in 2016 to give something back,' said Matthias Seidel, Committer and member of the Apache OpenOffice Project Management Committee. 'After a steep learning curve, I am proud to be part of the community that provides this great software for the public good and benefits millions worldwide.'

Apache OpenOffice is available as a free download to all users at 100% no cost, charge, or fees of any kind. OpenOffice source code is readily available for anyone who wishes to enhance the applications. The Project welcomes contributions back to the project, its code, and its community. Those interested in participating with Apache OpenOffice can find out more at https://openoffice.apache.org/get-involved.html .

Availability and Oversight
As with all Apache projects, OpenOffice software is released under the Apache License v2.0 and is overseen by a self-selected team of active contributors to the project. A Project Management Committee (PMC) guides the Project's day-to-day operations, including community development and product releases. For project data, documentation, and more information on Apache OpenOffice, visit https://openoffice.apache.org/ and https://twitter.com/ApacheOO .

12 releases have been made under the auspices of the ASF. The project strongly recommends that users download OpenOffice only from the official site https://www.openoffice.org/download/ to ensure that they receive the original software in the correct and most recent version.

About The Apache Software Foundation (ASF)
Established in 1999, The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) is the world’s largest Open Source foundation, stewarding 227M+ lines of code and providing more than $20B+ worth of software to the public at 100% no cost. The ASF’s all-volunteer community grew from 21 original founders overseeing the Apache HTTP Server to 813 individual Members and 206 Project Management Committees who successfully lead 350+ Apache projects and initiatives in collaboration with 7,900+ Committers through the ASF’s meritocratic process known as 'The Apache Way'. Apache software is integral to nearly every end user computing device, from laptops to tablets to mobile devices across enterprises and mission-critical applications. Apache projects power most of the Internet, manage exabytes of data, execute teraflops of operations, and store billions of objects in virtually every industry. The commercially-friendly and permissive Apache License v2 is an Open Source industry standard, helping launch billion dollar corporations and benefiting countless users worldwide. The ASF is a US 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization funded by individual donations and corporate sponsors including Aetna, Alibaba Cloud Computing, Amazon Web Services, Anonymous, Baidu, Bloomberg, Budget Direct, Capital One, Cerner, Cloudera, Comcast, Facebook, Google, Handshake, Huawei, IBM, Inspur, Pineapple Fund, Red Hat, Target, Tencent, Union Investment, Verizon Media, and Workday.

1.6 million downloads of Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7

On Sep, 21st we have released Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7. Since then we had 1.6 million download requests. And this is only for the newest release. There are more for other versions that the users download due to their special needs. And not included are the many others from news magazins - online or on CD/DVD.

Another impressive number is: 294 million. These are the downloads over all versions since 01st January, 2012.

Also with this post we want to call your attention again to 2 important things:

  1. We strongly advise to download software only from its original source. Then you are on the safe side to avoid any viruses or malware. For Apache OpenOffice it is 'https://www.openoffice.org/download/'.
  2. You don't need a permission or even registration to use or copy Apache OpenOffice as it is free and open source software. So, no problem with license keys and fees and other restricting stuff that is wasting your lifetime.

As usual, the Open Document Editors DevRoom will be jointly organized by Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice, on Saturday, February 3 (from 10:30AM to 6:30PM, room AW1.120). The shared devroom gives every project in this area a chance to present ODF related developments and innovations.
We are now inviting proposals for talks about Open Document Editors or the ODF standard document format, on topics such as code, localization, QA, UX, extensions, tools and adoption related cases. This is a unique opportunity to show new ideas and developments to a wide technical audience. Please do keep in mind, though, that product pitches are not allowed at FOSDEM.
Length of talks should be limited to a maximum of 30 minutes, as we would like to have questions after each presentation, and to fit as many presenters as possible in the schedule. Exceptions must be explicitly requested and justified. You may be assigned LESS time than you request.

Over 200 million downloads of Apache OpenOffice

Apache OpenOffice continues to enjoy the user's valuation.

Recently the new record mark of 200 million downloads was reached. The downloads are managed by our partner SourceForge .

The high demand of the most current release 4.1.3 - that was released in October - is an acknowledgment of the previous work and a great motivation for the future.

The ongoing trust of our users is also a thankful expression to all people who put their personal spare time and effort into the project and software.

But of course there are more ways to distribute Apache OpenOffice. The most common one is to download the binary packages from one of the many mirror servers. But also printed magazines with an included DVD are possible, you can get it from your neighbors, friends, coworkers, it's part of free software collections, and many more ways we can think of.

You don't need a permission or even registration to use or copy Apache OpenOffice as it is free and open source software. However, this makes it also difficult to get meaningful numbers of actual users. It's not measurable if a download stands for a single user or an installation in a larger network.

Furthermore it's not known if Apache OpenOffice was downloaded the first time or it's an update for a previous installed version. Much more interesting to know is that the statistics show a steady download of 100,000 every day.

It's safe to say that Apache OpenOffice has one of the highest user base in the world of free software projects. And for this we want to say Thank You!

Installation Preliminaries

The following pre-installation steps are recommended for Linux distributions. These should be taken to assure that you have a clean install of Apache OpenOffice due to internal considerations and/or the installation of LibreOffice, if it exists on your system.

  • Check to see if LibreOffice has re-routed the OpenOffice binary. Type 'whereis soffice' from a console.

If this is symlinked to LibreOffice, remove the symlink. (see your favorite reference for how to do this). This will NOT remove LibreOffice, this will only disallow LibreOffice to redirect the normal OpenOffice binary -- typically /usr/bin/soffice -- to LibreOffice instead.

  • Due to directory structure changes in Apache OpenOffice 4.0, your older OpenOffice 3.x should be deleted entirely by a new install or update process. This is normal. If you experience problems using the 'update' process, please remove the old OpenOffice 3.x packages manually.
  • If you have been testing one of the older developer snapshots, not the released version, revision 150370, completely remove this old version before attempting a new install or update.
  • See Java requirements.

RPM or DEB: Download to Installation Directory, Unpack

1. Review the System Requirements

2. Download your favorite Linux version of Apache OpenOffice

3. Unpack the downloaded image to prepare for installation.

The following command should work: tar -xvzf 'linux package name'.tar.gz where 'linux package name' is the beginning part of the archive you just downloaded.This will create an installation directory.

Apache Libreoffice Download

The name of the installation directory will likely be the language abbreviation for the install set, e.g., en-US.

4. Add the install directory as a 'local repository' for your GUI package manager if possible. This will enable you to do a GUI install rather than command line.

5. Historically, OpenOffice has provided desktop integration packages for madriva, redhat, suse, and now freedesktop. Many new desktop window managers like KDE4, Gnome3, and Unity now adhere to the freedsktop.org standard for icon placement and mime-type definitions. You may want to install the freedesktop desktop integration package if you experience issues with your former desktop integration.

RPM Installation

1. su to root, if necessary, and navigate to Apache OpenOffice installation directory.

You will likely need to be root to run the rpm command to install the software.

2. cd into the RPMS subdirectory of the installation directory.You should see a lot of rpms here and one sub-directory called 'desktop-integration'.

3. Install this new version by typing: rpm -Uvih *rpm.

By default, this will install Apache OpenOffice in your /opt directory.Alternatively, you can use a GUI package installer, reference the installation directory, and install all rpms at the top level. This may also aid you in determining any dependency problems if they exist.

4. Install the desktop integration features for your setup.

cd to desktop-integration

in the installation directory, and, depending on your package manager/system, install the appropriate desktop interface using RPM.

5. Finally, start up Apache OpenOffice 4.0.0 to insure it's working.

DEB Installation

1. su to root, if necessary, and navigate to Apache OpenOffice installation directory.

You will likely need to be root to run the dpkg command to install the software.


2. cd into the DEBS subdirectory of the installation directory.You should see a lot of debs here and one sub-directory called 'desktop-integration'.

3. Install this new version by typing sudo dpkg -i *.deb

By default, this will install Apache OpenOffice in your /opt directory.Alternatively, you can use a GUI package installer, reference the installation directory, and install all debs at the top level. This may also aid you in determining any dependency problems if they exist.

4. Install the desktop integration features for your setup.

cd to desktop-integration in the installation directory,

and, depending on your package manager/system, install the appropriate desktop interface using dpkg.5. Finally, start up Apache OpenOffice 4.0.0 to insure it's working.

How do I install Apache OpenOffice 3.4 on Linux?


Installation Preliminaries

The following preinstallation steps are recommended for Linux distributions. These should be taken to assure that you have a clean install of Apache OpenOffice due to internal considerations and/or the installation of LibreOffice, if it exists, on your system.

  • Check to see if LibreOffice has re-routed the OpenOffice binary to itself instead.

If this is symlinked to libreoffice, remove the symlink. (see your favorite reference for how to do this).This will NOT remove LibreOffice, this will only disallow LibreOffice to redirect the normal OpenOffice binary -- typically /usr/bin/soffice -- to libreoffice instead. Note: Depending on how your distribution has packaged LibreOffice, you may need to remove it completely for Apache OpenOffice to work correctly.

  • Remove your old version of OpenOffice (3.3 or lower) completely.

The safest way to do this for most users is to use a GUI package manager to search for OpenOffice and remove all packages.

  • If you want Java integration, you want to make sure you have the latest JRE installed. It should be at least JRE 1.6. You can find the JRE for Linux at the Java JRE for Linux download site. Alternatively, a JRE might be included on the installation media of your distro as part of a complete Java development environment.

How do I install OpenOffice.org (3.3, and lower) on Linux?


There are several methods to install OOo 3 on Linux.

Installation Preliminaries

1. First untar (unzip) the downloaded file. Replace the filename in the command with the file you have downloaded.

2. Change to the new folder.

If you are the only user on the system, you can choose to start the supplied setup script and follow the graphical dialogs. This installs all files to your home folder, and you are the only user who can use the OOo suite.

If you want to install the suite to a central location, where the suite can be used for many users of the system (this is the preferred method), you have two choices:

  • install as admin, using the graphical setup script, or
  • install as admin, using the native Linux rpm installation method

Installation using the graphical setup script

1. Open a shell or terminal window.

2. Become superuser by typing su -

Libreoffice Or Apache Openoffice

3. Grant permission to open a graphical display for root, using the authority from your user account. This step is necessary for security reasons on some systems, while on other systems adequate security is provided without this.

Libreoffice Download

4. Change to the directory that contains the OOo 3 installation program.

5. Start the setup script.

6. Follow the instructions.

Install using the rpm method (command line)

1. Install all rpm files together:

2. Change to the desktop_integration subfolder and install the UI integration for your system

For Debian based system like Ubuntu, you can install using the setup script in the default download for Linux, download the installation files in .deb format, or you can use an rpm to deb converter and install using dpkg.
