You are welcome to test the new OpenOffice.org release candidate called "2.0.4 rc1". This is intended for testing, so be careful not to give it anything you can't lose.

How about a plan for 2.1 or 3.0... did they make anything like that?

According to the issue tracker, here are features, enhancements, and patches targeted for 2.1:
http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/buglist.cgi?issue_type=ENHANCEMENT&issue_type=FEATURE&issue_type=PATCH&target_milestone=OOo+2.1
(By the way, anyone can you can his own issue tracker queries.)

However, according to the following two, recent links from a Sun Microsystems guy, that's not the way the system works. They don't say, "We want this, this, and this in 2.1 and that other thing in 3.0." Instead, they say, "This and this are ready. They're big changes, so let's call it 3.0."

http://www.openoffice.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=releases&msgNo=9763
http://blogs.sun.com/ratte/date/20060308

So, I would not consider the issue tracker query "set in stone" until close to the 2.1 release is due. Sometimes features are targeted, but they aren't ready, so they're retargeted. But for the issues now marked FIXED, I'm guessing they have a good chance to meek their target.

Sometimes you have to open an issue to guess. Consider "Support for multiscreen displays (dual monitors)." A comment from a developer (cl) recently (August 2006) states the target is 2.1, so I think it will be ready for 2.1. (Developer user names usually have one or two characters.)

Does that answer your question? Smile

I was unable to find a good roadmap for anything after 2.04... If you look here:

And select each sub-topic, it will show you the target for major features.

Just looking through that 2.1 targetted list there is one thing that people have been asking for for some time that we finally see, a tabbed interface: http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=54847
