Good to see this progress. Let's hope all the implementations are faithful and interoperable.

This fits with the rest of the disgraceful behaviour by Microsoft in the same period, discrediting both themselves and the ISO standards process. Microsoft Brazil has a track record of heavy-handed politics too.

If LibreOffice maintains the pace of improvement Brian describes here, by the time work on OpenOffice resumes next year (yes, I really think it will take that long) the gap will be huge.

Don't for a second underestimate the importance of document formats - the way your files are stored by the program you use - in locking you in to a vendor ecosystem. It sounds dull - the esoterica of the mundane - but it's a crucial driver in the dominance of major vendors. DFD has been running for a few years and provides a day to raise the profile of document formats and demand that our governments, schools, religious bodies, employers and more all use open formats so that we're all free to engage with them using the computers and software of our choice rather than theirs. Without document freedom phrases like "if you don't use Microsoft Word you can't apply" negate our choices and incrementally remove our freedoms. So celebrate Document Freedom Day 2011 this year, it's on March 30th and you can join in easily, maybe by choosing to challenge a demand to use a particular computer program that day ("I'd love to read your document but I don't have the program you used to make it").

I've lost count of how many people sent me today's XKCD, complete with a bearded figure advocating use of open document formats...
