In last Friday's update to the NeoOffice Mobile servers, not only did we fix a bug, but we also added the ability to handle uploads of your documents in Microsoft Office format.
Currently, the NeoOffice Mobile floating window in NeoOffice only uploads your document in ODF (.odt, .ods, .odp, etc.), PDF, and HTML formats. Since NeoOffice can also save in Microsoft Office's .doc, .xls, and .ppt file formats reasonably well in most cases and uploading those file formats required only minor changes to the NeoOffice Mobile uploading code, we added this new feature in the test patch listed at the end of this post.
While you cannot yet download the Microsoft Office file that this test patch uploads, Tim is working on adding links to allow you to download that file format. We believe this might be useful for sharing an editable copy of your documents with people who are not using NeoOffice but have Microsoft Office.
If anyone can install the following test patch? You should not see any change until Tim adds more links in the NeoOffice Mobile server code so if you see any change in behavior when running NeoOffice Mobile in NeoOffice, please let us know:
