News: Apache POI 3.0 released - API to access MS-formatted files

  1. Apache POI 3.0 has been released. POI is a Java library to manipulate various file formats based upon Microsoft's OLE 2 Compound Document format using pure Java; this means you can write Excel files from Java, along with some other capabilities. According to the changelog, this version adds some PowerPoint support, as well as some formula support.

    Considering Microsoft kindly changed all the file-formats completely for Office 2007, what kind of timeframe can we expect support for them within?
