Orcus 0.11.0

I’m very pleased to announce that version 0.11.0 of the orcus library is officially out in the wild! You can download the latest source package from the project’s home page.

Lots of changes went into this release, but the two that I would highlight most are the inclusions of JSON and YAML parsers and their associated tools and interfaces. This release adds two new command-line tools: orcus-json and orcus-yaml. The orcus-json tool optionally handles JSON references to external files when the --resolves-refs option is given, though currently it only supports resolving external files that are on the local file system and only when the paths are relative to the referencing file.

I’ve also written an API documentation on the JSON interface in case someone wants to give it a try. Though the documentation on orcus is always work-in-progress, I’d like to spend more time to make the documentation in a more complete state.

On the import filter front, Markus Mohrhard has been making improvements to the ODS import filter especially in the area of styles import. Oh BTW, he is also proposing to mentor a GSOC project on this front under the LibreOffice project. So if you are interested, go and take a look!

That’s all I have at the moment. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen.
