The Free and Open Productivity Suite
Released: Apache OpenOffice 4.1.15 Mac OS X Delivery Schedule

The Mac Porting Team for OpenOffice are actively producing a new Aqua build of OpenOffice.

Currently the Mac port is producing regular builds for both PPC and Intel Macs. However only some locales are being QAed and released as stable. At the moment, the Mac Porting Team are keeping up with producing builds, as the main supported Operating System builds of OpenOffice are produced. For more information see the roadmap for the OpenOffice project (PDF).
