Release Notes

The OpenXML Document Viewer team is pleased to announce the release of the first version of the Open XML to HTML 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 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.

The installation guidelines for the plug-in is available here.
