Hi, all,

I wrote earlier this week about the issue we were having with uploading and downloading Office docs to the wiki (it was zipping .docx, .xlsx, and .pptx files on upload and therefore not able to open them on Windows machines on download). I'm happy to report that simply upgrading to 1.17 appears to have resolved the issue!

It's mentioned in the release notes, http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Release_notes/1.17, under "Bug Fixes for 1.17," https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=23688.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my repeated pleas for help on this issue!
