Does anyone know what has happened to OpenOffice.Org? Is OpenOffice.Org going to re-released anytime soon? If so, when?

Is this what you mean? Open Office.

As I understand it the people responsible for OO set up a new offshoot called Libre Office (which I use) http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/digital-source/170560-marantz-sa8001-modification-eliminate-distortion.html#post2254391

Looks and works essentially the same.

This explains it

Don't know what happened to the first link...

There is a statement from the Apache Software Foundation on OO's front page, which might explain things. http://www.openoffice.org/

I have OO with loads of templates and extensions that I have added. Are they compatible with Libre Office?

I would think they would be compatible.

Libre Office looks and feels the same as OO to use... even the opening menus and screens are the same apart from colour and saying Libre.
