Is Openoffice 3.0 available somewhere for Fc9?


Hullo All,
I am running Fedora 9 x86_64 and would like to update Openoffice from 2.4.1-17.5 to 3.0, but there doesn't appear to be an update package available for Fc9.
I have the following repositories enabled...
Fedora 9-x86_64
Fedora 9-x86_64-Updates
Livna For Fedora Core 9-x86_64-base

but none of these show any later versions, which is a tad puzzling as in my searches I found a Fedora announcement that OpenOffice 2.4.2-18.x had been released for Fc9, but that doesn't show up anywhere.
Can someone please let me know if OO 3.0 is available for Fc9...or where any later version can be found (2.4.1-17.5 has some nasty instabilities here)?
Perhaps the repositories have changed and my Add/Remove Software tool is not looking in the right place.

Cheers,
Terry

OOO 3 is not available for Fedora 9 and won't be; not from the repositories. You'd have to upgrade to Fedora 10 for that. However, if you really want it on F9, you can go and download it from their site

http://download.openoffice.org/other.html#en-US

and install it yourself easily. That's what I did back when I had F9, and also on one of my computers still running on F7.

Edit: Just in case, the link below explains how to do the install

OK. I hadn't realised that it wouldn't be included in updates.
I shall look at an install from the Openoffice site.
Many thanks for your helpful response.

Cheers,
Terry
