We’re pleased to announce that we’ve released v2.1.0 of docx4j. Get it from our downloads page.
docx4j is an open source Java library for manipulating OpenXML WordprocessingML documents, released under the Apache software licence. docx is the default file format in Word 2007 in Microsoft Office 2007, and part of an ISO standard (more or less unchanged).
v2.1.0 is mainly a maintenance release.
Attention has been paid to ease of use of hyperlinks, images, and headers/footers.
The HTML output has been redone to use the XSLT from the OpenXMLViewer project; it can be configured to save images as files, and automatic list numbers are handled.
This release should also work under Java 1.5, now that I have re-built fop-fonts. I had contributed TTC (true type collection) handling code to FOP, and it was accepted, so fop-fonts now uses that (ie the patch which makes fop-fonts is that much smaller).
