OpenOffice 2.4 went stable on Gentoo this week. Version 2.4 includes a lot of security fixes as well as new features to make the upgrade worthwhile for anyone. The ability to control your stored passwords in OO with a master password is a nice one in my security oriented mindset.One caveat that I have found when upgrading that doesn’t directly relate to upgrade OpenOffice itself, but having upgraded my JRE. OpenOffice didn’t seem to pick up on the new path and was still trying to use /opt/sun-jdk-1.6.0.03/jre after I had upgraded to 1.6.0.05 which resulted in OpenOffice always telling me that my JRE was broken. Removing ~/.ooo-2.0/user/config/javasettings_Linux_x86.xml and ~/.ooo-2.0/user/registry/cache/org.openoffice.Office.Java.dat then resetting the JRE from within OpenOffice fixed the issue.
