Open Office 2.1

I've written a mail merge for OOo documents. Originally targeting OOo 1.x (now removed) with extensive rewrites to cover 2.0(OOo became 100% standards compliant). With the release of OOo 2.1 I checked to ensure it still functioned as expected, as it is still complying to the same standards this should be a no-brainer. It was, my mail merge runs against OOo 2.1 just as it did against OOo 2.0.

Take some notes here Microsoft - no wait, you do understand standards, but if you conform to a standard then you will sell less crap. The power of open source, open standards.
