GWG releases specs for office printing, outlines plans for XPS
The Ghent PDF Workgroup
issued a press release
in which they announce their new specifications for Microsoft Office document printing. They also outline their areas of future development, of which the following are very interesting for the XPS market:
- MS® Office-generated XPS (XML Paper Specification) files and how to handle these for
- The more general use of XPS as a print ready exchange format between creation and production of printed documents.
I've written about the GWG before, and I attended two of their meetings already.
Their work on best practices regarding PDF is legendary, and a lot of bright folks are in these meetings. It's a good sign that XPS is taken seriously, and I'm looking forward to the work the GWG will do around XPS.
