eWEEK Labs Walk-Through: Lotus Symphony 1.1 - Pluggable

By eWEEK Labs  |  Posted 2008-10-06 Print this article Print


There are a handful of plug-ins available for Symphony that benefit from Eclipse's module update framework, and I'm looking forward to seeing where Symphony developers at IBM and elsewhere take the platform.
Lotus Symphony 1.1 is a freely-available office productivity suite from IBM that brings together a trio of word processor, spreadsheet and presentation applications under a Big Blue label. Symphony's interface is new, based on Eclipse, but its internals are old, based on OpenOffice.org 1.1.4; the result is a fairly good productivity suite with an interface that's much fresher-and a feature set that's more stale-than those that grace the OpenOffice.org 3.0 release I recently tested.
