I'm pleased to announce a new release of xlutils. This is a small collection of utilities that make use of both xlrd and xlwt to process Microsoft Excel files.
The list of utilities included in this release are:
xlutils.copy Tools for copying xlrd.Book objects to xlwt.Workbook objects.
xlutils.display Utility functions for displaying information about xlrd-related objects in a user-friendly and safe fashion.
xlutils.filter A mini framework for splitting and filtering Excel files into new Excel files.
xlutils.margins Tools for finding how much of an Excel file contains useful data.
xlutils.save Tools for serializing xlrd.Book objects back to Excel files.
xlutils.styles Tools for working with formatting information expressed in styles.
A full list of changes since the last release can be found here:

In case you're not aware, xlrd and xlwt are two excellent pure-python libraries for reading and writing Excel files. They run on any platform and, likely, any implementation of Python without the need for horrific things like binding to Excel via COM and so needing a Windows machine.
If you use any of xlrd, xlwt or xlutils, the following google group will be of use:
Hope some of this is of interest, I'd love to hear from anyone who ends up using it!
