XPS formāts

Windows Vista nāk ar daudziem jaunumiem un es pat sāku domāt, vai tiešām man jau ir pienācis laiks iztērēt kārtējos simtus latu, lai uzlabotu sava datora veiktspēju atbilstoši Vista prasībām.

Par vienu no jaunumiem es jau rakstīju iepriekš (vairāk jaunumu gan var uzzināt Microsoft Color Management lapā), bet šis ir kas stipri interesantāks – XPS formāts, ko prezentē Microsoft.

The XPS Document format provides a safe and secure way to store and share an electronic document. The layout of the content is fixed and does not contain any arbitrary code, macros, or scripts. XPS Documents include built-in support for digital signatures and can be protected by using rights management applications that use Windows RMS. These features provide a very stable, secure, and reliable document platform and make XPS Documents ideal for applications that require accurate presentation of the document’s contents, adherence to data governance, protection of sensitive information, or long-term document storage.

Windows Vista introduces the XPS Document format and uses it as a document format, a Windows spool file format, and a page description language (PDL) for printers. Microsoft understands that maintaining a high quality print environment in the enterprise is very important to the IT Professional and Windows Vista use of XPS technologies throughout the document life cycle and print path greatly improves print predictability, reliability, fidelity, and performance.

Es neticu, ka ir kāda jēga salīdzināt XPS ar PDF formātu, ko tik drosmīgi dara Digital Times (drīzāk gan aiz iemesla, ka nevar iedomāties, par ko tad vēl interesantu uzrakstīt), tomēr idejas, kas ir izmantotas šī formāta izveidē ir apsveicamas un dažas no tām, visticamāk, visdrīzākajā laikā papildinās PS valodas jauno versiju.
