Subject: Invitation to comment on Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) v1.3 - ends Sept. 29th

OASIS Members and other interested parties,

We are pleased to announce that Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) v1.3 from the OpenDocument TC [1] is now available for public review and comment. This is the third public review for OpenDocument v1.3.

The OpenDocument Format is an open XML-based document file format for office applications, to be used for documents containing text, spreadsheets, charts, and graphical elements. OpenDocument Format v1.3 is an update to the international standard Version 1.2, which was approved by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as ISO/IEC 26300 (2015). OpenDocument Format v1.3 includes improvements for document security, clarifies underspecifications and makes other timely improvements.

The OpenDocument Format specifies the characteristics of an open XML-based application-independent and platform-independent digital document file format, as well as the characteristics of software applications which read, write and process such documents. It is applicable to document authoring, editing, viewing, exchange and archiving, including text documents, spreadsheets, presentation graphics, drawings, charts and similar documents commonly used by personal productivity software applications.

The documents and related files are available here:
