Every phpdocx version includes new features and improvements. Previously unsupported features may have been added to newer releases, or past issues may have been corrected.
Please install from www.openoffice.org the package for your OS to start it in headless mode.
The included OO version is a standard compilation but as explained on http://www.phpdocx.com/documentation/conversion-plugin/conversion-plugin-installation-and-set-up you can use a custom package.
