Posted by rjbiii on June 16, 2008

According to an article in TechWorld, Microsoft has released a software developer kit (SDK) for manipulating the XML that is under the hood of Office 2007 files.

Open XML SDK 1.0 , available from the company’s website, is designed to allow developers to produce code enabling their applications to create, access and manipulate Open XML documents, Microsoft said.

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.

MS has also announced that its Office Suite will support the Open Document Format (ODF) beginning in 2009:

At the same time, Microsoft said last month that it will begin supporting the rival Open Document Format (ODF) in Office 2007 and Office 14, beginning with a service pack set for release in the first half of 2009.
