What's The Status Of OpenDoc?

As you may be aware, on March 14, 1997, Apple Computer and IBM - the companies who developed the OpenDoc component software architecture - announced the discontinuation of future funding for OpenDoc development. In Apple's case, that means that Apple will no longer handle the internal process of delivering updates, improves and fixes beyond the release of MacOS 8.
OpenDoc ships included in MacOS 8.5 and installs as a vital part of your system software.
It is fully compatible with MacOS 9.0.

What's The Future Of OpenDoc?

Although Apple has discontinued internal development of OpenDoc, various OpenDoc Network member firms are working collectively to secure the ability to continue development efforts. OpenDoc is currently installed on millions of MacOS-compatible computers and remains accessible to the majority of the over 31 million MacOS -compatible computers worldwide.

Most any Mac running on a 68030 or better processor can utilize the power of OpenDoc, and Xeosoft is convinced that this superior technology gives MacOS users more power for their software dollar than any other component architecture currently available.
