    OpenOffice has been discontinued some time ago, because of various issues.
    Most devs have moved to LibreOffice, which is also bundled in linux distributions

    Wow, I didn't know that!

    If OpenOffice has been discontinued does this mean that it's more likely that the data I created in OpenOffice's Writer app was uploaded to the Internet?

    What is true is that development slowed dramatically after the fork of LibreOffice, but apparently development has picked up pace again.

    Apache OpenOffice Project said:
    Forest Hill, MD —12 October 2016— Apache OpenOffice, the leading Open Source office document productivity suite, announced today Apache® OpenOffice™ v4.1.3, now available in 41 languages on Windows, Linux, and OS X...

    "As an Open Source project led by an all-volunteer community, occasional lulls in momentum are not uncommon," said Marcus Lange, Vice President of Apache OpenOffice. "Such was the case with OpenOffice until recently. We wanted to change this, starting with a new bugfix release."...

    "This release symbolizes a resurgence in the project," said Patricia Shanahan, Release Manager for Apache OpenOffice 4.1.3. "We are proud to continue development of one of the most visible and widely used Apache projects."

    According to Wikepedia the last release was version 3.3 on 25*January 2011.
    In 2011 Oracle Corporation, the then-owner of Sun, announced that it would no longer offer a commercial version of the suite[12] and soon after donated the project to the Apache Foundation.[13][14]
    Apache renamed the software Apache OpenOffice.[15] Other active successor projects include LibreOffice (the most actively developed[16][17][18]) and NeoOffice (commercial, only for macOS).

    That is the Wikipedia entry for OpenOffice.org who did indeed cease development.

    This is Wikipedia's entry for Apache.org who took up the development....

    I would say, that is just their wishful thinking, I still consider it as abandonware. It takes them months, even years just to fix security vulnerabilities, hardly trustworthy. 4.1.4 is nowhere to be found.

    I use WPS, but we use OO at work. Just saying, that we can not expect any new features from OO anytime soon and I would not recommend OO from a security standpoint, unless running on an offline computer.

    I just checked and OpenOffice Writer says this:

    "OpenOffice 4.1.2 is available.The installed version is OpenOffice 4.1.1."
