There is a time for all good things to come to an end, and the time has come to shut down OpenXmlDeveloper.org.
Screen-casts and blog posts: Content on OpenXmlDeveloper.org will be moving to EricWhite.com.
Forums: We are moving the forums to EricWhite.com and StackOverflow.com. Please do not post in the forums on OpenXmlDeveloper.org. Instead, please post in the forums at EricWhite.com or at StackOverflow.com.
Please see this blog post for more information about my plans moving forward. Cheers, Eric
Trondheim, Norway, 09/28/06. At the latest meeting of the Ecma TC45 technical committee, the final draft of the Office Open XML specification was approved as ready for submission to the Ecma General Assembly. The General Assembly will review the spec and then vote on approval in December, as the final step in making Open XML an official Ecma standard. Brian Jones has all the details on his blog.
This is exciting news for Open XML developers! It means that the ongoing changes to the spec are finally done, and you can write code around the latest version of the spec and be confident that your Open XML documents will conform to the standard when it's approved. So download the final draft of the spec (Brian has all the links on his blog post above), and start getting creative with Open XML. And if you have any questions, post them right here on OpenXmlDeveloper so we can all learn together.
