OpenOffice.org

OpenOffice.org known as OpenOffice, is a discontinued open-source office suite. It was an open-sourced version of the earlier StarOffice, which Sun Microsystems acquired in 1999 for internal use. OpenOffice included a word processor, a spreadsheet, a presentation application, a drawing application, a formula editor, a database management application, its default file format was the OpenDocument Format, an ISO/IEC standard, which originated with OpenOffice.org. It could read a wide variety of other file formats, with particular attention to those from Microsoft Office. Sun open-sourced the OpenOffice suite in July 2000 as a competitor to Microsoft Office, releasing version 1.0 on 1 May 2002. In 2011 Oracle Corporation, the then-owner of Sun, announced that it would no longer offer a commercial version of the suite and donated the project to the Apache Foundation. Apache renamed the software Apache OpenOffice. Other active successor projects include NeoOffice. OpenOffice.org was developed for Linux, Microsoft Windows and Solaris, for OS X, with ports to other operating systems.

It was distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License version 3. OpenOffice.org originated as StarOffice, a proprietary office suite developed by German company Star Division from 1985 on. In August 1999, Star Division was acquired by Sun Microsystems for US$59.5 million, as it was cheaper than licensing Microsoft Office for 42,000 staff. On 19 July 2000 at OSCON, Sun Microsystems announced it would make the source code of StarOffice available for download with the intention of building an open-source development community around the software and of providing a free and open alternative to Microsoft Office; the new project was known as OpenOffice.org, the code was released as open source on 13 October 2000. The first public preview release was Milestone Build 638c, released in October 2001. OpenOffice.org became the standard office suite on many Linux distros and spawned many derivative versions. It became noteworthy competition to Microsoft Office, achieving 14% penetration in the large enterprise market by 2004.

The OpenOffice.org XML file format – XML in a ZIP archive machine-processable – was intended by Sun to become a standard interchange format for office documents, to replace the different binary formats for each application, usual until then. Sun submitted the format to the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards in 2002 and it was adapted to form the OpenDocument standard in 2005, ratified as ISO 26300 in 2006, it was made OpenOffice.org's native format from version 2 on. Many governments and other organisations adopted OpenDocument given there was a free implementation of it available. Development of OpenOffice.org was sponsored by Sun Microsystems, which used the code as the basis for subsequent versions of StarOffice. Developers who wished to contribute code were required to sign a Contributor Agreement granting joint ownership of any contributions to Sun, in support of the StarOffice business model; this was controversial for many years. An alternative Public Documentation Licence was offered for documentation not intended for inclusion or integration into the project code base.

After acquiring Sun in January 2010, Oracle Corporation continued developing OpenOffice.org and StarOffice, which it renamed Oracle Open Office, though with a reduction in assigned developers. Oracle's lack of activity on or visible commitment to OpenOffice.org had been noted by industry observers. In September 2010, the majority of outside OpenOffice.org developers left the project, due to concerns over Sun and Oracle's management of the project and Oracle's handling of its open source portfolio in general, to form The Document Foundation. TDF released the fork LibreOffice in January 2011. In April 2011, Oracle stopped development of OpenOffice.org and fired the remaining Star Division development team. Its reasons for doing so were not disclosed. In June 2011, Oracle contributed the trademarks to the Apache Software Foundation, it contributed Oracle-owned code to Apache for relicensing under the Apache License, at the suggestion of IBM, as IBM did not want the code put under a copyleft license.

This code drop formed the basis for the Apache OpenOffice project. During Sun's sponsorship, the OpenOffice.org project was governed by the Community Council, comprising OpenOffice.org community members. The Community Council suggested project goals and coordinated with producers of derivatives on long-term development planning issues. Both Sun and Oracle are claimed to have made decisions without consulting the Council or in contravention to the council's recommendations, leading to the majority of outside developers leaving for LibreOffice. Oracle demanded in October 2010 that all Council members involved with the Document Foundation step down, leaving the Community Council composed only of Oracle employees; the project and software were informally referred to as OpenOffice since the Sun release, but since this term is a trademark held by Open Office Automatisering in Benelux since 1999, OpenOffice.org was its formal name.

Darling railway station is located on the Glen Waverley line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the eastern Melbourne suburb of Malvern East, having opened on 24 March 1890; the line through the station was built to link Burnley to the Outer Circle line and on to Oakleigh.

Darling was upgraded to a Premium station in 2008, although the current platform buildings date back to 1979. Darling has two side platforms, it is serviced by Metro Trains' Glen Waverley line services.
