Microsoft Releases Binary File Specs

Posted by rjbiii on July 1, 2008

Microsoft has posted detailed specifications of its pre-2007 Office file formats, and protocols built into newer applications:

Highlights of the actions announced today include: posting Version 1.0 releases of technical documentation for Microsoft protocols built into Microsoft Office 2007, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2007; posting nearly 5,000 pages of new technical documentation for the Microsoft Office binary file formats for Word, Excel and PowerPoint (.doc, .xls, .xlsb and .ppt); and making significant strides in the company’s efforts to foster more open engagement with other members of the IT community.

I’m hoping that this new information helps the software vendors in this space improve on their current efforts.
