Release Notes

The OpenXML Document Viewer team is pleased to announce the OpenXMLViewer v1.0 Release of the OpenXML to HTML translation project. The OpenXML Document Viewer project provides plug-ins and tools to view MS Word 2007 documents on platforms where Word 2007 is not available.

This is achieved by using the OpenXMLViewer browser plug-in or the command line interface to convert the Word document (.docx) into HTML. The current release supports IE 7, IE 8, Opera 9.62, Firefox 3.1b browsers on the Windows OS and Opera 9.62 and Firefox 3.1b on Linux (OpenSUSE 11.0).

The project has been released as an open source project under the MS-PL license

The focus of this release is around providing a reusable OpenXML to HTML engine that can be leveraged to build more complex solutions.

Documentation and release details can be found on the project website.

We also have a demo Job Site to demonstrate the server side functionality of the OpenXMLViewer project. You can test drive the application here.

The detailed release notes are available in the Downloads & Files section above. The installation instructions can be found here

Reviews for this release

What happened to this project? it looks like a great start, but needs completing to handle more advanced formatting. Any alternatives? What is the recommended way to get users's Word documents (with embedded graphics, charts, tables and so on) on to a web-browsed platform so that they are displayed well in the Browser?
