Updated OpenOffice Mac Download Pages

Ahead of the OpenOffice.org conference, I have just released the new download pages for OpenOffice.org (X11) on the Mac. They are now much simpler than before. The download is now available at http://porting.openoffice.org/mac/download/. The old download pages (except the legacy download for 1.1.2) redirect to the new pages.

Part of this is the fact that there is no longer a big long list of mirrors to choose from. This is because I have used the OpenOffice download bouncer for all the downloads in the OpenOffice.org download servers. If anyone else needs to update the pages in the future, you will need to speak to cloph on IRC, who is able to update the bouncer with the new files.

I'd like to thank Fipa for his design, and James McKenzie on the mac@porting.openoffice.org list for his feedback.

There are more updates to come to the OpenOffice Mac Porting site before the end of the month, thereafter updates to the site will slow down.

I'm waiting on fink compiling quanta, which is the editor that Fipa used to create the pages, so hopefully I'll find it easier to keep the site up to date with the new design. I hope that it will be better than the more than a year old Nvu, even if I have to use X11.
