Release Notes: Support for the new Proofreading API in OpenOffice 3.0.1 has been added. There are new features in the rule disambiguator, such as unification, filtering, deleting, and adding interpretations. Several rules have been fixed or improved. This version only works with OpenOffice 3.0.1, not with 3.0.0. Also, any previously installed release of LanguageTool must be de-installed from OpenOffice.org before upgrading OpenOffice.org.

A few rules have been added or improved, and bugs have been fixed.
