      Product Description:
      NeoOffice is a fully-featured set of office applications (including
      word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, and drawing programs) for
      Mac OS X. Based on the OpenOffice.org office suite, NeoOffice
      incorporates dozens of native Mac features and can import, edit, and
      exchange files with other popular office programs such as Microsoft
      Office. Unlike the Mac OS X release of OpenOffice.org, NeoOffice does
      not require the X11 windowing system.

      Released as free, open-source software under the GNU General Public
      License (GPL), NeoOffice is fully functional and stable enough for
      everyday use. The software is actively developed, and updates and
      improvements are available on a regular basis.
      What's new in this version:
      * Better support for multiple monitors
      * Additional improvements in font handling and text layout
      * Significantly improved import of WordPerfect for
      Macintosh documents via libwpd-0.8.4
      * Fixes for many additional bugs reported against 1.2 Alpha
      * Requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later
      * For a more complete list of changes since NeoOffice/J
      1.1, see the release notes.

        There have been no *additional* improvements to the WP-Mac import since NeoOffice 1.2 Alpha with Patch-5 (roughly my post at <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wordperfectmac/message/2333>), for the curious--but the app is now a Beta, for those who find Alpha milestones unpalatable :-)

        I hear a new AbiWord stable release is due soon, but I don't know if it includes libwpd-0.8.4 or not....

          Where did you find the Beta? When I looked at the site, all I saw
          was the Alpha.

            My experience has been that NeoOffice does not print well. There are kerning problems, letters ran together, etc. RLM

              Woops. AbiWord is the program that has the problems with printing, not NeoOffice. RLM

                  <http://www.planamesa.com/neojava/download.php> has all the download mirrors (which are worldwide, but rotated). www.neooffice.org doesn't have much content on it these days, so it's always the last to get updated, alas. <http://www.planamesa.com/neojava/> and <http://neowiki.sixthcrusade.com/index.php/NeoOffice_Release_Notes> will have more up-to-date info (the latter keeping you apprised of new patches as well).
