A year in the life of SSP: 2007
As this year draws to a close, I thought I would recall what the year has been like for SSP.
The April 2007 Edition involved one of the biggest internal changes in SSP's recent history. Not since the implementation of high-end graphics capabilities (version 5.5) had so much change taken place for a single upgrade. These changes, however, did provide new capabilities and features. I discuss the changes here:
The June 2007 Edition included the long-waited implementation of audio file support for songs and slide shows. These features were strongly influenced by the wish list. Also included in this edition was the capability to use the CinFX bevel effects as stand-alone (non-entrance) animations. So in summary:
- Audio file support for songs
- Audio file support for slide shows
- Enhanced availability of the bevel effect.
I realize now that I have not blogged on any of these topics (except for here), so perhaps I should put that on my to-do list.
The October 2007 Edition provided improvements to the user interface for ease of use, and enhancements in the fill/line technologies for text and objects. I discuss these enhancements here:
The complete list of enhancements for these new editions is available at the What's New page.
It's been a busy and fun year.
And I thank all of you who made the decision to make SSP your presentation software of choice this year, and to those of you who continue to support the product as subscribers. It's a pleasure to design and build a product for a purpose that I'm passionate about, and for people that I relate with, and to work with the team that I do.
Happy New Year!
