Ambulant Project Status

In the past period, the Ambulant core focussed mainly on the implementation of SMIL 3.0. The new SMIL 3.0 State Facility allows the state of a presentation to be defined, manipulated at run-time, and then saved. The new SMIL 3.0 Timed Text component is a lightweight format that provides the `timed text' data type.

In addition to the development of these two new modules, the common Ambulant component was restructured, improving its portability. The `Windows Mobile' code base moved to a more recent version of Windows development tools.

The project team expects to include the initial support for the new SMIL 3.0 features around the announcement of the Last Call working draft of the SMIL 3.0 specification, in July 2007.

In the past months, several ways of increasing the impact of the development work were explored. Partnerships with the outside world were build. A quick overview:

The near term focus for the project, is on the completion of the formal SMIL 3.0 specification, and the development of a full implementation of its features in Ambulant.
