Open XML File Formats

17 minutes, 26 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

Ofice 2007 has new file formats for Word, Excel and Powerpoint, based on industry-standard ZIP and XML technologies.  These formats were getting a lot of attention at the Office Devcon, where Bill Gates announced the Open XML Formats Developer Group in his keynote presentation.  This new group is comprised of big tech firms like Microsoft, Apple, Intel and Toshiba, government organizations like the Florida House of Representatives, and ISVs from around the world, and their goal is to provide a forum for the free exchange of information about how to implement the Open XML Formats.

Mauricio Ordonez, Doug Mahugh, Kevin Boske and Brian Jones discuss the Office Open XML file formats, the new www.OpenXmlDeveloper.org web site, and the kinds of things developers are looking to do with the new file formats.

  • I don't like the cuts and edits and stuff, I kinda prefer the Scoble single-shot thing... this feels a tad over-produced.

  • Still not sure about the multi camera thing, but the Audio was GOOD!

    XML by its very nature is open, but hey, feel free to take full credit for inventing that too.

    All they said was that they where using open file formats that used XML. Quit your bitching.
  • MassifMassif aim stupidly high, expect to fail often.
    I'm sure I could develop a format based on XML which wasn't open.

    I mean - I could just hide the schema away from the world and leave y'all guessing. Although I'm sure there are more devious things I could do.
  • Does MS intend to publish any Java library that could generate this kind of XML files? If not, does it intend to publish a .Net library that could generate this kinds of files? If no on both prior questions, does anyone knows some other party that intends to develop a open source library like that?
  • MS already released a .NET library in its .NET 3 framework (System.IO.Packaging namespace). For the Java library, still wait a few days, it may be an announcement soon ...

    Hi. Two ears ago XML formats were fresh and new and had very small practical impact. Now it is just a part of any data exchange protocol - from international organizations using SDMX to <a href="http://creditcardapplicationline.com">credit card</a> companies using XML in their data exchange.

  • I think the software is completely fine as well. Easy to use.
