"Filled Net Chart
Another new chart type in OpenOffice.org 3.2 is the Filled Net Chart. The Filled Net Chart is similar to the regular Net Chart with lines, but the area between the lines and the origin is filled in addition.

"Chart Context Menu
The context menu within charts and parts of the menu have been reworked to address some usability issues. For example the common entry "Object Properties" has been replaced by something more descriptive. The offered command in the context menu now shows the name of the selected object. So it says for example 'Format Legend...', 'Format Title...' instead of only 'Object Properties...'. The commands 'Insert Titles...', 'Insert Legend' and 'Insert/Delete Axes...' have been added to the context menu in case the chart area, the chart wall /floor or nothing is selected.

"Access to the data series properties is now also offered in the context menu of a single data point. So you are not lost anymore if you have clicked a second time on the same series."
