XML News from Friday, June 30, 2006

The OpenOffice Project has released OpenOffice 2.0.3, an open source office suite for Linux and Windows that saves all its files as zipped XML. It also runs on the Mac with X-Windows. This is a bug fix release that includes several security fixes. All users should upgrade. OpenOffice is dual licensed under the LGPL and Sun Industry Standards Source License.

Microsoft has posted the third beta of Internet Explorer 7 (Windows only). Feed reading is supposed to be feature complete in this release. Other new features in IE3 include tabbed browsing and print-to-fit. I hope it still supports XML, XSLT, and CSS; though Microsoft doesn't seem to say that anywhere I can find; and I don't feel like booting up Windows just to test that.
