Filed under: Uncategorized — jigarme @ 5:51 am

Microsoft Max, a beta application that was a testbed for new technologies and was designed to showcase the capabilities in Windows Vista’s new graphics and communication frameworks has concluded, Microsoft disclosed this week.

Max debuted a year ago as a photo organizer, and was later updated to add support for reading news and user defined RSS feeds. The company says the goals of the project were completed, and feedback from Max was incorporated into the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). All Max services, including the sharing of photos and news, will be shut down next week.
