By removing a check of the MIME type included in the input files, odt2txt will now also work on older OpenOffice.org XML files (*.sxw), which were produced by OpenOffice.org version 1.x and older StarOffice versions.
This release fixes line-wrapping problems with
texts that contain many
non-ASCII characters and fixes UTF-16 output. The
handling of vertical
whitespace is now more consistent, and the new
--output option allows
writing output to a file.
