xlutils 1.4.0 released!

Discussion in 'Python' started by Chris Withers, Aug 18, 2009.

  1. Hi All,

    I'm pleased to announce a new release of xlutils. This is a small
    collection of utilities that make use of both xlrd and xlwt to process
    Microsoft Excel files. The changes for this release are as follows:

    - Add sheet density information and onesheet option to
    xlutils.margins.

    - Reduced the memory footprint of xlutils.filter.ColumnTrimmer at the
    expense of speed.

    - Fixed incorrect warnings about boolean cells in
    xlutils.filter.ErrorFilter. xlwt has always supported boolean
    cells.

    - xlutils.filter.BaseReader now opens workbooks with on_demand = True

    - Added support for xlrd Books opened with on_demand as True passed to
    open_workbook.

    - Fixed bug when copying error cells.

    - Requires the latest versions of xlrd (0.7.1) and xlwt (0.7.2).

    To find out more, please read here:

    In case you're not aware, xlrd and xlwt are two excellent pure-python
    libraries for reading and writing Excel files. They run on any platform
    and, likely, any implementation of Python without the need for horrific
    things like binding to Excel via COM and so needing a Windows machine.

    If you use any of xlrd, xlwt or xlutils, the following google group will
    be of use:

    Hope some of this is of interest, I'd love to hear from anyone who ends
    up using it!

    cheers,

    Chris
