Windows 7 Will Include New Win32 API's For XPS

12 Nov 2008 | | One Comment

The next version of Windows — which coincidentally actually looks pretty good — will include new Win32 API’s for XPS developers. The new API’s will be:

  • XPS API provides creation, manipulation, reading, writing and other services for XPS documents and print streams
  • OPC API provides creation, manipulation, reading, writing and other services for Open Packaging Conventions-based file formats, including XPS, OOXML and an increasing number of industrial strength third party file formats
  • XPS Print API provides a new entry point for applications to benefit from the enhanced XPS Print Path, irrespective of whether the final output device supports XPS
If you’re looking for more information on XPS and Windows 7 then I recommend checking out Adrian Ford’s recent presentation at PDC: Windows 7 – Benefiting from Documents and Printing Convergence.
