The Dutch government program, Netherlands in Open Connection, and the OpenDoc Society cosponsored the two-day ODF “plugfest” at the Royal Library in The Hague, 15-16 June 2009, where vendors and open source projects were able to test ODF capabilities with each other in real-world, collaborative scenarios. OASIS TC chairs, Bart Hanssens, (ODF Interoperability and Conformance TC), and Rob Weir (co-Chair ODF TC), participated and delivered presentations. The details are posted here. The 'plug-fest' was notable for the broad participation from industry and open source communities.

Welcome to OpenDocument XML.org.
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.
The new release of widely used GemBox.Spreadsheet .NET component fully supports Open Document Format for spreadsheets (.ods files). GemBox.Spreadsheet already supports XLS, CSV, XLSX and HTML, so addition of ODF will enable C# and VB.NET developers to read, write and convert between all that formats. To understand the importance, we need to look at existing user base. GemBox.Spreadsheet is used by more than 1200 companies worldwide (Deutsche Bank, Intel, IBM, HP, Verizon, Schlumberger, Bayer, Siemens, ABB, Shell, Infineon, XEROX, Allianz, AT&T, Volvo, Swarovski and others).

The KOffice team is extremely pleased to finally announce version 2.0.0
of KOffice. This release marks the end of more than 3 years of work to
port KOffice to Qt 4 and the KDE 4 libraries and, in some cases,
totally rewrite the engine of the KOffice applications.
