IBM Lotus Symphony - Features


IBM Lotus Symphony consists of:

  • IBM Lotus Symphony Documents, a word processor
  • IBM Lotus Symphony Spreadsheets, a spreadsheet program
  • IBM Lotus Symphony Presentations, a presentation program
  • a web browser based on Firefox 3

Each application is split into tabs.

Symphony supports the OpenDocument formats as well as the binary Microsoft Office formats. It can also export Portable Document Format (PDF) files and import Office Open XML files. Previous support for Lotus SmartSuite formats was disabled in Symphony 3.

A web based version of Symphony, called LotusLive Symphony, was planned for the second half of 2011, although it was already announced in February 2010 for first half of 2010.

It is based on Eclipse Rich Client Platform from IBM Lotus Expeditor for its shell and 3 for the core office-suite code, which will likely be dropped in the next major version of the Apache OpenOffice. version 1.1.4 was dual-licensed under both the GNU Lesser General Public License and Sun's own SISSL, which allowed for entities to change the code without releasing their changes. Therefore, IBM does not have to release the source code of Symphony.

In 2009 IBM created development tools for BlackBerry smartphones to link to IBM's business software, which also allow opening ODF file-formats, following a full Symphony later.

Lotus Symphony 3.0.1 adds enhancements including support for one million spreadsheet rows, bubble charts, and a new design for the home page.

Famous quotes containing the word features:

    All visible objects, man, are but as pasteboard masks. But in each event—in the living act, the undoubted deed—there, some unknown but still reasoning thing puts forth the mouldings of its features from behind the unreasoning mask. If man will strike, strike through the mask!
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    “It looks as if
    Some pallid thing had squashed its features flat
    And its eyes shut with overeagerness
    To see what people found so interesting
    In one another, and had gone to sleep
    Of its own stupid lack of understanding,
    Or broken its white neck of mushroom stuff
    Short off, and died against the windowpane.”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    These, then, will be some of the features of democracy ... it will be, in all likelihood, an agreeable, lawless, particolored commonwealth, dealing with all alike on a footing of equality, whether they be really equal or not.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)
