xlrd 0.8.0 released!

Hi All,

I'm pleased to announce the release of xlrd 0.8.0:

http://pypi.python.org/pypi/xlrd/0.8.0

This release finally lands the support for both .xls and .xlsx files.
Many thanks to John Machin for all his work on making this happen.
Opening of .xlsx files is seamless, just use xlrd as you did before and
it all should "just work".

xlrd 0.8.0 is also the first release that that targets Python 2.6 and
2.7, but no Python 3 just yet. Python 2.5 and below may work but are not
supported. If you need to use Python 2.5 or earlier, please stick to
xlrd 0.7.x.

Speaking of xlrd 0.7.x, that's now in "requested maintenance only" mode
;-) That means, if possible, use 0.8.x. If you have a really good reason
for sticking with 0.7.x, and you find a bug that you can't work around,
then please make this clear on the (e-mail address removed) and
we'll see what we can do.

If you find any problems, please ask about them on the list, or submit
an issue on GitHub:

https://github.com/python-excel/xlrd/issues

cheers,
