Microsoft Office 2007 to feature some support for ODF

Posted on Thursday, July 06 2006 @ 22:54:42 CEST by

Microsoft says Office 2007 won't feature built-in Open Document Format (ODF) support but the software giant will release open-source add-ins for its Office suite that will be able to translate Open XML formats into ODF.
In a surprise announcement, Microsoft said that it will create tools to build a "technical bridge" between its own Office Open XML Formats and the Open Document Format (ODF) in response to government voices that requested such capability in Microsoft's next Office suite. However, the "translator" won't be a native feature of the software, but will be offered as a feely available open-source plug-in, that will have to be downloaded by users. In addition to the default Open XML file formats, the 2007 Microsoft Office system will include a new menu option that points users to add-ins for PDF and XML-based formats such as the XML Paper Specification (XPS), and now ODF as well.
