IBM has announced that we will be donating IBM Lotus Symphony source code to the Apache OpenOffice project. This is intended to provide this open source community with new capabilities, further accelerating the development of the OpenOffice platform. Lotus Symphony source code includes enhancements in usability, performance and accessibility, ensuring data is easier to view, read and manipulate from any type of editing tool, and for people with vision impairments.
What does this mean for IBM Lotus Symphony?
IBM Lotus Symphony will be enhanced by the collaborative innovation of the open community and we are expanding our efforts in Lotus Symphony. This donation of code is part of IBM's commitment to Lotus Symphony and open technologies. Our goal with this donation is to contribute to the strong open community working to develop future document technologies.
IBM Lotus Symphony is, and will remain, an important product to IBM and its clients. IBM will continue to work on Lotus Symphony pushing the evolution of document technologies both internally and in collaboration with the Apache OpenOffice community. In fact, we are in the process of expanding the Lotus Symphony team working on development of open document technologies.
