I believe the core converter (filter) code in the Sun plug-in is newer
than the code in the public OO.o tree, but I have not taken the effort
to look into the source code repositories.
My number of "90%" is really an "interpretation". At the very least, I
would describe it as "perfectly usable", based on tests of tens of
documents. On most documents the result is close to exact, but
some documents show some differences in formatting. Still I would
keep a copy of another ODF interfacing application around just in
case the plug-in wouldn't work on an incoming ODF document.
