Well, that's good, in fact it would be great if they got rid of java or make it completely optional with no loss of functionality.

That was my only gripe with OO, it's heavy reliance on Java. In the earlier versions, you could opt to install OO without any Java components. I hope LibreOffice can 'liberate' the suite from Java, and make it only optional not mandatory.
