  • Toolkit Support – The supported versions of the toolkits have gone through rigorous quality testing to meet the expectations of MarkLogic partners and customers. These versions of the toolkits are now officially supported by MarkLogic.

  • Updated Open Source Versions Available – Updated open source versions of the toolkits are available under the Apache 2.0 license.

“We’re looking forward to the updates to the MarkLogic Toolkits for Microsoft Office,” said Eric Severson, CTO, Flatirons Solutions. “We’ve seen our customers do some exciting things with the open source versions of the toolkits, so having a version that is supported by MarkLogic will make it even easier to introduce them into applications. The toolkits have the power to save a lot of time and money for companies looking to leverage existing content in new projects.”
