From the mailing list:

Roberto Galoppini wrote:AOOE has been successfully migrated, below a concise list of improvements,
a blog post on SF will follow next week (possibly coordinating that with
the new AOO release).

1. The whole platform has been upgraded to a web 2.0ish style. Adding more
content, serve developers' needs as well as scale with end-users' growth is
easier now.

2. The look&feel has been updated and aligned with the new AOO 4 look. We
put the word 'beta' in the header, to be removed once the new release will
go out.

3. The search has been improved and it provides the autocomplete
functionality (try it out writing 'dr' for example).

4. The auto-update for Extensions has been reactivated.

5. A new feature allows devs to report AOO 4.0 compatibility for their
extensions, and by default we set all to 'unknown'. Have a look at
http://extensions.openoffice.org/upgrad ... 18f+a81383 to
get an example.

Note that to take full advantage of this new feature we need authors to set
properly the compatibility field, and to crack a new Extension to check
extensions compatibility or changes (it should check which extensions are
installed, e.g. A, B, C and then call
http://extensions.openoffice.org/upgrade/400/A+B+C). Maybe we can discuss
further option once AOO 4 will be released.

6. Finally Extensions authors have full control over comments and spam.
There are two types of people: the ones that believe that there are two types of people and the ones that not.
