Version 4.0 – June 17, 2010
Overview
Specification, implementation and testing work for Version 4.0 started at the end of 2009.

We put the main focus in this release on compliance with the ISO version of OpenXML, i.e.
ISO/IEC 29500:2008 in its transitional variant, and the compatibility with Office 2010 (Office
2010 supports ISO/IEC 29500:2008 transitional as well). In addition we took care of improving
some features and fixing a number of bugs as described below.

New Common Features
Version 4.0 offers the following new common features:

       The ODF Add-in for Microsoft Office has been updated to install and work correctly on
        Office 2010.
       Users of Office 2007 and Office 2010 are informed during setup that their Office version
        already supports ODF natively.
       The Installation and Troubleshooting Guide available on SourceForge has been updated
        with additional troubleshooting information.

PowerPoint Translator Specific Features
The ODF Add-in for Microsoft PowerPoint provides the following new features:

       Support for ISO/IEC 29500:2008 Transitional as a producer and consumer
       Support for tables in presentations as produced by OpenOffice.org 3.0
       Two new slide transitions of Powerpoint 2010 , Ripple and Gallery have been included
       Numerous bug fixes

Version 3.0 – March 27, 2009
Overview
Specification, implementation and testing work for Version 3.0 started end of December 2008. It
consisted of three milestones:

      M1 on 30 January 2009: “Intermediate Code Drop”
      M2 on 20 February 2009: “RTM Code Drop Phase I/CTP”
      Final on 27 March 2009: “Stabilized RTM Code Drop/Final”

We put the main focus in this release on ODF 1.1 compliance and Office 2007 SP2 compatibility.
(Office 2007 SP2, which will be release in the next months, allows opening ODF files and saving
documents in ODF format for the first time.) In addition we took care of improving some
features and fixing a number of bugs as described below.

New Common Features
Version 3.0 offers the following new common features

      ODF 1.1 compliance: We identified and fixed problems related to ODF 1.1 compliance
       issues. ODF documents created with Version 3.0 now complete the ODF 1.1
       conformance check without any problems.
      Office 2007 SP2 compatibility: Version 2.5 exhibited problems when translating ODF
       documents created by Office 2007 SP2 and even some problems when translating PPTX
       documents created by Office 2007 SP2. In addition, Office 2007 SP2 reported problems
       with ODF documents created by Version 2.5. These problems were addressed in
       Version 3.0

PowerPoint Translator Specific Feature
      Improved hyperlink translation
      Improved OLE translation
