Sun ODF Plugin 3.0 for Microsoft Office

Finally, a new version of the ODF Plugin for Microsoft Office is available!

It's been a while that we have released version 1.2 - but hey, why is it called 3.0? Did I miss version 2.0?

Well, the answer is very simple. I thought it would be a good idea to give it the same version number like the underlying version of OpenOffice.org.

This way, people know exactly which versions of the conversion filters are used.

The conversion between ODP/PPT and between ODS/XLS is exactly the same like in the equivalent version of OpenOffice.org.

The conversion between ODT/DOC is basically the same, but might differ in some case because the Word Filter API is based on RTF, so there is an additional conversion involved.

This version of the plugin supports ODF 1.2 and loading ODF template files. The conversion filters have been further improved.

Comments:

It might be a good idea to turn off the 'register to download'. If I'm at work, I cannot register or log into non-company sites. I know a number of others who have similar situations.

Hi SimpleGuy,

I don't know who decides which products need registrations and which not.

I forwarded your concerns to the responsible product manager :)
