The new 3.0 has arrived!

Today there’s good news for us all; the all brand new version of 3.0 is here, and it is not in beta anymore!

I have used the betas up until now, and have been very happy with the stability, so the final version should be even more stable, and I highly recommend that you do so. It is, of course, still free of charge. You can find the download here. You can find other languages here, but please be advised that not all languages has been implemented for version 3 yet. is being developed for both Mac OS X, Linux, Windows and Solaris.

The Norwegian government insist on ODF-support

Several Norwegian newspapers has the recent days been reporting that the Norwegian government will insist on all public offices to use one of the following document types:
1 - HTML as the primary format for information publication
2 - PDF for all documents not meant to be edited
3 - ODF for all documents where the end user will be able to edit the documents (forms to be filled out etc.)

The changes will be effective January 1st 2009. The pressrelease has not been translated into English yet.

ODF (Open Document Format) is the default fileformat for OpenOffice.

Norway is just one of several countries endorsing ODF as the format of choice, which, in my opinion, is very good for all of us, as all software developers have full access to every aspect of the format needed to implement it in their software. This includes Microsoft.
