The first Preservation Brief was published in 1975. Since then, over 40 more have been added to the series. For over 25 years, Technical Preservation Services has helped home owners, preservation professionals, organizations, and government agencies by publishing easy-to read guidance on preserving, rehabilitating and restoring historic buildings. More than 2 million copies of the Preservation Briefs are in print and the illustrated Preservation Briefs 1-42 are now available online as an integral part of our 25th anniversary celebration.
Kinesis Software announces the release of it's latest product: KineticFusion, a great advance in rich graphical content management. KineticFusion is the perfect fusion of new technologies for the Web. For the first time, SWF files, the native format for Macromedia® Flashâ„¢ can be fully represented in a new XML vocabulary, Rich Vector Markup Language, or RVML. Our processing engine can decompile SWF to RVML and compile RVML back into native SWF format. All resources, whether ActionScript, sound, video, or images can be extracted and inserted, SWF files can be viewed and manipulated using external development tools, versioned, stored, or translated to SVG allowing users to author SVG applications using any Flashâ„¢ authoring environment.
