Sun Presenter Console, just to name one of the very last ones available for OOo 3.0 beta, provides you with the ability to see the upcoming slide, the slide notes, and a presentation timer whereas the audience see only the current slide.
Paolo Mantovani – PLIO’s founding member and known OpenOffice.org developer – developed BasicAddonBuilder, an OpenOffice.org extension that allows you to export a StarBasic library in the OpenOffice.org Extension format,
ready for deployment. BasicAddonBuilder does not require special skills or a deep knowledge of extensions specifications.
A wizard-style dialog will guide you through the process, allowing you to define in a graphical way all menu and toolbars that will be added to the OpenOffice.org user interface in order to launch macros from your StarBasic library.
Paolo talking about his extension said:
OpenOffice.org’s extensions are a great selling point, since they allow developers to create new functionalities and customizations, a very important characteristic in typical enterprise environments.
