Apache OpenOffice for OS/2 and OS/2 based systems 4.1.6 GA
We are proud to announce that we now deliver the version 4.1.6 GA shortly after the official 4.1.6 release.
This GA includes drag and drop support like on other platforms.

The GA version includes English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Dutch and Russian language pack. And of course this version comes nicely packed in a wpi.

You need only one complete wpi for your preferred language. If you want to install an additional language you need only the language wpi for the new language.
