Microsoft releases first Open XML SDK
Microsoft has released the first finished version of the software development kit (SDK) for the Open XML Format, the default storage format for Microsoft Office 2007 and the basis for a standard that is currently awaiting publication by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). Open XML SDK 1.0 , available from the company's website, is designed to allow developers to produce code enabling their applications to create, access and manipulate Open XML documents, Microsoft said. The SDK includes an application programming interface (API) simplifying the creation of code for searching documents, creating documents, validating document parts, modifying data and other tasks, Microsoft said.
