Hello Roberta,
   Yes. 4.1.0 is the latest version of Apache OpenOffice.
   The 4.1.0 version should install in parallel to your 3.0 version. I
suggest keeping both versions active for a little while until you are sure
that 4.1.0 works well for you. There have been many improvements since 3.0
but it only takes one bug sometimes to cause a big problem.
   The latest version can still save in the .doc format and its native
format is .odt.
Best regards,
