Creative Commons Add-in for Microsoft OfficeAs promised, the first two issues reported with the Creative Commons Add-in for Microsoft Office have been fixed. You can go to the download page and get the new version. The installation experience is identical to the previous version and the add-in looks the same. The only changes from v1.0.0 to v1.0.1 were to ensure the Creative Commons license with the correct jurisdiction is downloaded and to have the add-in run correctly when PIAs for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are not all installed.

The third issue appears to be something with scaling on high DPI systems. The 3Sharp guys spread the dialog out a little bit to help out a little bit. At this time, I do not believe that we are planning another release of the add-in.

I should also note that you do not need to uninstall the previous version of the add-in before installing the new version. The installation will automatically upgrade the previous binaries if necessary.

While no one likes to immediately rollout an update, the events of the last few days have provided me the opportunity to document the story behind the upgrade of the add-in. If all goes well, the next post on this topic from me will actually be about how we built the installation for the add-in.
