Planamesa Software has posted the first beta of NeoOffice/J 1.2, a Java-based Mac port of the open source OpenOffice 1.1 suite. New features in 1.2 include suport for the OpenOffice 2.0 file format, EPS images, and accessibility features. Mac OS X 10.3 or later is required. NeoOffice is published exclusively under the GPL.

Chris Pederick has released the Web Developer Extension 1.0 for Firefox, Flock, and Mozilla. It has lots of neat features. I use it to set my browser window size for taking book screenshots and testing out presentations. It's also very useful for debugging weird CSS layout issues; though that's hardly all it does.
