OpenProj 1.0 Released

OpenProj 1.0 has been released, and the software has now passed 350,000 downloads since inception.

It’s a Java-based project management application that works well for my purposes as a simple and occasional project management software user. I’d like to see the UI improved a bit (mostly the top bar of buttons and the menus), and perhaps consider a switch from its “CPAL” open source license (based on the Mozilla Public License, but I am not very familiar with CPAL itself) to LGPL or something less controversial within the open source community.

Another positive development is that OpenProj is being distributed bundled with StarOffice 8.0 in Europe which will provide it with good visibility, and strengthen the featureset available to StarOffice buyers as well.
