Sun Microsystems has released a beta of its open source StarOffice 8 suite and version 3 of its Java Desktop System.

Sun said the StarOffice 8 beta for Linux enhanced interoperability with Microsoft Office applications, while Java Desktop 3 improved device support and interoperability functions.

Java Desktop 3 was available for developers to view at this week’s LinuxWorld conference in Boston, Massachusetts. The StarOffice 8 beta is available for public download from the Sun website.

The full version of StarOffice 8 is expected later this year. The beta can be downloaded here from http://www.sun.com/staroffice.
