Phase II of the binary translator for Word documents (doc to docx) has been finished. The latest version has been extensively tested and offers a number of new features as described in the previous blog entries.

Let me thank all internal and external contributors, which helped to improve the translation quality. In particular, I was amazed and happy at the same time that some of you guys really looked deep in our code and identified quite a few issues. Thanks again!

We are now looking forward to also improving the two other binary translators: xls to xlsx and ppt to pptx. We are currently planning the feature scope of the next release and hope you will follow up our work and contribute to it as you did so for the Word translator. For example, feature requests can be submitted via the SourceForge tracking system.
