The 0.9.1 version of the Excel extension was released and is now available for download. This is mostly a bug fix release, with a number of contributions by Rob Gagnon. The 2 main fixes are related to detection of custom formatted numeric fields, that were incorrectly detected as dates and readRow()/readCol() methods that had a bug when 2 and 3rd parameters are supplied, causing the last row/column not to be read. Additionally a getSheetByName() method was introduced that allows locating a sheet by it's name in either case sensitive or insensitive form.
