Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2 brings stability fixes, bug fixes and enhancements. All users of Apache OpenOffice 4.1.1 or earlier are advised to upgrade.
Main improvements include:
- Bug fixes in Writer, Calc, Impress/Draw, Base.
- Better WebDAV and file locking support: OpenOffice is now able to properly interact with Microsoft Sharepoint. These enhancements were funded, and contributed upstream, by the Emilia-Romagna regional administration (Italy), where OpenOffice was adopted a few years ago.
- Redesign of the PDF export dialog for better usability on small laptop screens.
- Updates of underlying libraries, for better performance and increased security.
- Security vulnerability fixes, with details eventually disclosed at the security announcements page.
