Binary Documentation (.doc, .xls, .ppt) and Translator Project Site are now live

Brian Jones, Senior Program Manager just broke the news in his post today.

Quoting from him:

"As promised last month, the binary documentation (.doc, .xls, .ppt) is now live. In addition to this, the project to create an open source translator (binary -> Open XML) has now been formed on sourceforge, and the development roadmap has been published. Read my earlier post for more background on this:

Another great surprise in all of this is that we’ve made the documentation for a few other supporting technologies available as it may be of use to folks implementing the binary formats:

The technologies included are:

  • Windows Compound Binary File Format Specification PDF | XPS
  • Windows Metafile Format (.wmf) Specification PDF | XPS
  • Ink Serialized Format (ISF) Specification PDF | XPS "
