Deep Zoom Composer Updated – July 2009 / Release Candidate

Last week, to coincide with the release of Expression Blend + SketchFlow RC and Silverlight 3, we updated Deep Zoom Composer as well. You can download it from the link below:

As always, please uninstall all existing versions of Deep Zoom Composer before installing the new version.

This release contains improvements to a handful of the existing features based on feedback many of you have provided us.

Bringing back the Blend / Visual Studio projects for certain templates was one of the changes we made (see earlier post). We also made interacting with the Deep Zoom player smoother by removing the constraints that often led to some odd/jagged zooming and panning. The final change of note has to do with our Exporting where we made it extensible as well as possible for you to create composition-less collection exporting.

The last sentence was quite the mouthful, but instead of elaborating here, we will be elaborating in a series of blog posts what the new Exporting changes are and how to use them.

    The new version of DZC looks great. However, I’d like to make a request for the DeepZoomTools.dll. Can you please add public Interfaces for the classes so we can easily unit test? That would be really nice.

    Hi CoderX – do you mean, make more of the classes public?

    Hi guys,

    Please make a SDK for this tool. I want to able to integrate this to my website so users can upload photos/images then with the SDK the code will generate the composed file to run in browser.

    Hi Oguz – we don’t have plans to release an SDK, but the DeepZoomTools.dll will be given redist permission in our EULA when we get closer to releasing DZC.

    That should allow you to use DeepZoomTools in your own projects.
