  • Blog Post: XPS at TechEd 2006

    Microsoft TechEd 2006 is next week and we will have a session on XPS there. Marcio will be going solo with no support from his team, so if you are there, offer to carry something for him. Description of the session: DEV324 Windows Vista As a Document Platform: Programming XPS and 2007 Microsoft Office...
  • Blog Post: Windows Vista Product Guide

    The Windows Vista Product Guide is available up on ms.com. It seems to have finished its’ appearing-disappearing act and is up there permanently. Some links strangely point directly to the word doc forcing you to download a 60MB file instead of the smaller xps version. Here is the link to the page where...
  • Blog Post: XPS, PDF and Adobe

    So it is certainly an interesting news day today. For those interested in the world of PDF and XPS, you probably have already read the Wall Street Journal Article about changes we are making because of Adobe. There are also a few other articles that cover the story in case you do not have access to WSJ...
  • Blog Post: WinHEC and Beta 2

    It’s been a big week. WinHEC is wrapping up and we have shipped Beta 2. Beta 2 is awesome (I have been 'XP-free' for several months and love it) and it means we are really headed towards shipping. I stopped by the Beta 2 ship party today here on campus where we had a live band, food and drinks for the...
  • Blog Post: AIIM Day 3 - Final Day

    AIIM - Final Day Like all shows, the last day is always slow. Still, we had a lot of traffic in the booth in the morning. I headed out at noon to catch my flight home, but heard that even until 3 we still had a constant flow of people in the booth and the 1:15 theater presentation was well attended...
  • Blog Post: It's May! AIIM and Winhec around the corner

    It is suddenly May and things are busy as ever around here. Of course, focusing on Beta 2 is our top priority and that looks real good at this point. In two weeks we will be on the road at AIIM . A lot of excitement brewing for this event. It is the first time MS has ever had a presence at AIIM let alone...
  • Blog Post: XPS Sample Docs available

    We recently posted a bunch of sample XPS documents. Download them here . These are primarily for people building XPS solutions for the purpose of testing. The docs are designed to exercise all of the different parts of XPS. Hopefully soon we will get some 'good looking' docs posted that show real-life...
  • Blog Post: XPS Essentials Pack Beta 1 Released!

    Today we launched Beta 1 of what we are calling the XML Paper Specification Essentials Pack. If you go to our viewer page you will notice that there are now two links - one to the current viewer built on WinFX and the other to the new XPS Essentials Pack Beta 1. Mahmood from the XPS Essentials team posted...
  • Blog Post: .85 is released!

    OK..my last post was a little ambitious - I was about a week off in my prediction of getting .85 of the XPS and OPC spec out. More bureaucracy in getting things posted to ms.com then I can faithfully predict sometimes. Printed copies distributed inside the team came in hot-pink covers this time (there...
  • Blog Post: XPS .85 spec here soon

    A lot of people have been asking about .85 - it's coming soon. Should be out this week. I will make a post (and there will be one on the XPS blog) as soon as it is out. - Andy

  • Blog Post: New XPS whitepaper on document workflow

    We snuck a new whitepaper up on microsoft.com. Document Workflows in Windows Vista . The graphic on Page 3 is worth the price of admission all by itself. The paper is not in a very obvious place (up in the printing section of WHDC) but we will get it more visible soon. Go Seahawks.
