Release Notes

See Change Log for details of the new features and bugfixes included in this release.

BREAKING CHANGE! From PHPExcel 1.7.8 onwards, the 3rd-party tcPDF library will no longer be bundled with PHPExcel for rendering PDF files through the PDF Writer.
The PDF Writer is being rewritten to allow a choice of 3rd party PDF libraries (tcPDF, mPDF, and domPDF initially), none of which will be bundled with PHPExcel, but which can be downloaded seperately from the appropriate sites.

For Mac OSX Lion/Mountain Lion Users: There is a free app in the App Store called "The Unarchiver" that will break the file into the correct directory structure.

Not Cool, Poor Documentation, Too Complicated for simply know how this works, First time try this. Documentation in .doc format. Not HTML or PDF.

The zip file is built incorrectly

Exactly what I was looking for! I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with PHP Version 5.3.10-1ubuntu3.2. Clear, useful examples provide all the documentation I need. Great work!

I use PHPExcel to parse uploaded spreadsheets on a Linux server, and I have to say, there's nothing better out there for this purpose. It needs a lot of memory, but if you can work around that, it does it's job extremely well.

I've tried chart functionality, but I'm getting some warnings, even with the examples provided. PHP Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in \PHPExcel\Writer\Excel2007\Chart.php on line 956

Didn't have any problems with unpacking like previous reviewers, since I use 7zip. Project itself is complicated, but, thanks to examples, you can use them in programs/scripts you create. No problems so far.

I'm on linux and experience the same problem as described in two previous posts. Zip file content doesn't contain any folder just files. I suggest to add another compressed file with different type, .tgz for example or .7z, here is link to 7z ->

As another reviewer mentioned, the release's ZIP file is built incorrectly, and when I unzip it (on Mac OS X 10.6.8) instead of getting folders and files, I get all the files in one folder, with backslashes in the names, like this: Classes\PHPExcel.php Classes\PHPExcel\Autoloader.php Classes\PHPExcel\CachedObjectStorageFactory.php The only way around it is to unzip on another computer.

The ZIP doesn't create folders on Mac OS X Lion when I unzip them in with the built in unzipper. I had to use my Windows VM inorder to get it to unzip correctly.
