Title Description
Blog Entry Battle Lines in the Document Format Wars Both Microsoft and the OpenDocument camp are forming alliances to promote their respective formats.
Blog Entry Massachusetts goes with the OpenDocument They mandate that all state organisations should use open standards for their documents, and specifically do <em>not</em> include upcoming MSOffice v12 XML formats. Wow. I think this is <em>great</em> news.
Blog Entry Microsoft Office to support OpenDocument Microsoft has announced that they will support the OpenDocument file format in MSOffice 2007. While I thought it was inevitable, it is still a gutsy move by Microsoft.
Blog Entry OpenDocument ratified by ISO The OpenDocument file format (ODF) was ratified by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
Blog Entry OpenDocument v1.0 Released OASIS, the international e-business standards consortium, announced that its members have approved the Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) v1.0 as an OASIS Standard.
Blog Entry Sun to offer online conversion of MSWord to OpenDocument Sun announced an online service to convert files from MSOffice/MSWord's proprietary formats to the new OpenDocument format. This is actually from November 2006 and I haven't seen anything else about it. It sounds like it is primarily to promote their new grid computing initiative and that there may be a cost associated with it. I am working on a similar service, which will be free (at least for smaller files). Via Richard MacManus.
Blog Entry What OpenDocument Is and Why You Should Care, A Groklaw article by Daniel Carrera that describes the political stuggle over an open file format for documents.
