Welcome to OpenDocument

This is the official community gathering place and information resource for the OpenDocument Format (ODF) OASIS Standard (ISO/IEC 26300). Suitable for text, spreadsheets, charts, graphs, presentations, and databases, ODF frees documents from their applications-of-origin, enabling them to be exchanged, retrieved, and edited with any OpenDocument-compliant software or tool. This is a community-driven site, and the public is encouraged to contribute content.

OASIS Creates Discussion List for Document Standards Interoperability TC

An open discussion list has been created to explore interest in forming an OASIS Document Standards Interoperability Technical Committee. The proposed TC is intended to address the development and documentation of scenarios for cross-standard content sharing; a specification for  an interoperability framework, including mappings from participating standard formats to the framework; and requirements on participating standards to improve interoperability.

The new discussion list is open to members and non-members and may last up to 90 days.
