Current revision

After we added many new features in September's NeoOffice 2.2.5 release, we have continued work on additional features for our users. In November 2008 we released NeoOffice 2.2.5 Patch 3 with the following new features:

Get these new features by installing the latest patch from the NeoOffice patch download page.

Special thanks go to all who have donated to the NeoOffice.org project since we released NeoOffice 2.2.5. Without everyone's donations, not only would we have been unable to implement the these new features, we would not have been able to provide rapid investigation and fixing of significant bugs found by users.

[edit] Mac OS X Services support

Starting with NeoOffice 2.2.5 Patch 3, many of the menus within the NeoOffice :: Services menu will be enabled whenever you highlighted data in your document. When you select any of these submenus, the highlighted data will be sent to the Mac OS X application that matches to the Services menu that you select.

For example, if you select the NeoOffice :: Services :: TextEdit :: New Window Containing Selection menu, a new document will be created in the TextEdit application and the highlighted data in your NeoOffice document will be copied to that new TextEdit document. For another example, if you select the NeoOffice :: Services :: Spotlight menu, Mac OS X will do a Spotlight search for the highlighted data in your NeoOffice document.

Please note that at this time NeoOffice does not support Mac OS X services that change the highlighted data in your document. Only services that read your highlighted data are supported. This means that services like NeoOffice :: Services :: ChineseTextConverter will be disabled in NeoOffice.

[edit] Experimental Snow Leopard support

Recently, Apple has released a developer seed of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Due to changes in Snow Leopard, starting with NeoOffice 2.2.5 Patch 3, NeoOffice will now run on the latest Snow Leopard developer seed. We expect that users will find bugs in NeoOffice when running on Snow Leopard that do not exist in earlier versions of Mac OS X, so users should consider our Snow Leopard support to be very experimental.

[edit] Security fixes

Two security vulnerabilities were found and fixed in NeoOffice's underlying OpenOffice.org code. Starting with NeoOffice 2.2.5 Patch 3, NeoOffice includes OpenOffice.org's fixes for these two vulnerabilities:
