Cover Story: How to Increase the Frame Rates of Your Flash Movies â€” Flash in its essence began as a tool for creating vector animations on the web. The Flash Player was designed specifically as a lightweight animation viewer to display those moving vector objects which are in their simplest form, mathematical equations that describe complex shapes made up of points, lines, curves and fills. However, nowadays developers and designers are using Flash to do a lot more than just animation, today we see Flash being used for everything from interactive banner ads to games and large applications with complex user interfaces. We are now pushing Flash to its limits and our frame rates are starting to suffer as we continue to develop content that is more application centric.
Microsoft is going to announce a major decision today, and that is to make the Office formats open access.
Microsoft is going to make the MS Office file formats for Word, Excel and PowerPoint available to ECMA International, the standards body, which will develop the documentation and make it available to the industry.
Using the documentation others will be able to write their own editors which can generate MS office documents and also this will mean that one no longer needs to have a licensed copy of MS Office to open or edit Office documents.
ECMA will take at least 18 months to make these formats available and it will be another 24 months before we can expect any meaningful applications can be created to make this available to the public.
Now this make it very clear that Microsoft has an alternate product due to Demo in 12 to 18 months which will replace the need for MS Office.
