Excel Writer v.15, preview

International code pages were added (see Subversion repository under "Code") : Thai, Japanese Shift-JIS, Chinese Simplified GBK, Korean (Wansung), Chinese Traditional BIG5, Latin II (Central European), Cyrillic, Latin I, Greek, Turkish, Hebrew, Arabic, Baltic, Vietnamese, Korean (Johab).

Unfortunately, no Unicode so far: the introduction of Unicode in the Excel format coincided with a leap in complexity... So, you cannot mix, say, Greek and Korean in the same sheet.

Excel Writer v.03 released

- data stream can now by any; supplied: Excel_Out_File, Excel_Out_String
- added "Text_IO"-like Put, Put_Line, New_Line,...

Last incompatibility for those using the 01/02 versions:
to write a file, you need to use Excel_Out_File instead of Excel_Out_Stream (which is now abstract); to create it is now Create instead of Create_File, same for Close.
