Kurtz'sKompund tips us to news that Microsoft has released a finished version of the Open XML software development kit
. Microsoft has made additional resources available
with the download. Quoting Techworld:
"The SDK includes an application programming interface (API) simplifying the creation of code for searching documents, creating documents, validating document parts, modifying data and other tasks, Microsoft said. The API can be used in any language supported by the Microsoft .Net Framework, the company said. The current SDK supports the version of Open XML supported by Office 2007, which is not the same as that ratified as a standard by the ISO, due to changes effected during the ratification process."
