Subject [ANN] POI 2.0-pre2 release
Date Fri, 11 Jul 2003 12:57:53 GMT


The POI Team is proud to announce the immediate availability of the Jakarta 
POI 2.0-pre2 release.  This is the second milestone on the way to releasing 
the 2.0 production release.


The POI project consists of APIs for manipulating various file formats 
based upon Microsoft's OLE 2 Compound Document format using pure Java. In 
short, you can read and write MS Excel files using Java.  Reading property 
information is also supported.  Work continues on reading and writing the 
MS Word format.


The change log for this release is as follows:

[fix] A nasty concurrency problem has been fixed.  Any users working in a 
multi-threaded environment should seriously think about upgrading to this 
[update] The EXTSST record has been implemented. This record is used by 
excel for optimized reading of strings.
[update] When rows are shifted, the merged regions now move with them. If a 
row contains 2 merged cells, the resulting shifted row should have those 
cells merged as well.
[fix] There were some issues when removing merged regions (specifically, 
removing all of them and then adding some more) and have been resolved.
[fix] When a sheet contained shared formulas (when a formula is dragged 
across greater than 6 cells), the clone would fail. We now support cloning 
of sheets that contain this Excel optimization.
[add] Support added for reading formulas with UnaryPlus and UnaryMinus
