March 18, 2008 by Mark Dodel

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service ++

From: Mark Dodel

" is a multiplatform and multilingual office suite and an
open-source project." For more general information about this see

There is a developers build of Beta1 of Open for eCS-OS/2 for
those with an active Support Agreement for eComStation and
OS/2. You have to Login thru the Mensys site ( ) and find it under your Downloads.

For more information about the Open for eComStation and OS/2
Support Agreement see

This Beta is available only in English. This build is based on the 2.4.0
m2 source code of which is newer than the general release
version available for other platforms which is at 2.3.1, which is why it is
listed as a developer Snapshot. From my limited experience with this
build, if you already have 2.0GA installed, this beta installs to a
different directory and you can use both, just not at the same time.

** Features **
- Support for XWP/eWPS sliding menu hilite (requires XWorkPlace 1.0.8 or
eCS 2.0 RC4)
- Support for clipboard bitmap formats and unicode text.
- Support for mouse wheel.
- Support for WPS integration via seperate package (OOoWPS101.WPI)
- FT2: this release supports the FreeType2 font engine for better text
- QUICKSTART: quickstart has been implemented eComStation and OS/2; when
enabled in
OOo option dialogs, a shadow of your quickstart WPS icon object will be
created in the startup folder.
- NLS: multiple NLS versions can be installed, you can change the
language with:
Tools - > Options - > Language settings - > User Interface (Though as
noted above, English is
currently the only available NLS choice)

Requirements for this beta include:
WarpIn 1.0.17 (Available on the OOo download page)
UniClip (available as uclip-0_2_2-os2.wpi on the OOo download page)
LibC 0.6.3 (Available on the Netlabs FTP: )
