Excellent news! We just published the Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Auxiliary Reference:
(This is a greatly enhanced version of the earlier Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 Integration API)
This reference was a huge collaborative effort, of which I was only a small part. Parts of this reference are based on my blog entries, but large sections of it were written by others. For instance, we have a new sample address book provider, written by Xiaoming Yin. And this reference wouldn’t have happened at all without the tireless efforts of Angela Chu-Hatoun and Allison Bokone, who had the jobs of taking all this information from disparate sources and hammering on it until we had something we could publish. And then there were the PMs and developers who contributed, too many to name here. It was a race to the finish. The last topic added was actually written yesterday morning!
I wanted to point out a couple things that we know we didn’t have time to finish:
- Download for the redistributable installer tzmovelib.msi: We had some last minute concerns over the format of this download and decided not to hold up the rest of the reference while we get the details settled. This download is coming. I promise!
- The wrapped PST sample: I was aware of, but did not find the time to fix, a few bugs in this sample. So we posted what we had and I’ll get to the bugs eventually. If you’re interested in what the bugs were and how to fix them, see the following threads:
I’ll post when these issues are corrected.
As we did with the Integration API before, we’ll be using my blog to post any errata. You can contact me directly or through comments if you discover any problems with the reference. Enjoy!
