Suppress NeoOffice automatic update checking
Authored by: thwaite on May 29, '07 09:51:06AM
Coincidentally, NeoOffice has an announcement on today's macintouch.com site of their nice new patch:
NeoOffice 2.1 Patch 5 updates the latest release of this Mac OS X-native version of the OpenOffice.org office suite. According to the release announcement, this patch brings performance improvements:
After countless hours of performance analysis work, we recently had a breakthrough that enabled us to identify specific performance bottlenecks in NeoOffice's underlying OpenOffice.org code and fix those bottlenecks by replacing the OpenOffice.org code with code that is optimized specifically for Mac OS X. As a result of our fixes, image scaling and drawing speed has been increased and memory usage has been reduced. While users may not notice much change in performance when using text-based documents, users should see image-intensive activities such as running a slide show with transitions or scrolling through large documents perform several times faster than before.
