DeepZoom "Viewer" 1.1

Deep Zoom Viewer has been updated to version 1.1!


It is still only beta-grade software (bug reports welcome) but a few new features have been added:

1. Easier to install
There is now a ClickOnce installer (with the .NET 3.5 SP1 Client Profile set as a pre-requisite). The ClickOnce installer also creates file associations on .DZI and .DZC - double-clicking on these should open them directly in Deep Zoom Viewer.
You can also just download a ZIP file (v1.2) if you prefer.

2. Loading of PhotoZoom by username
Just type a PhotoZoom username (like Craig) to explore the Deep Zoom images created on Microsoft's server-based Deep Zoom site.


3. Image attributes and metadata
Depending on whether you are viewing 'local' or internet-hosted Deep Zoom files, different file information (size, date) and metadata (if created in Deep Zoom Composer) is visible. Clicking on the underlined Location will open the image or tile in a new window.


4. Recent Files menu
Minor convenience...


Hope somebody finds it useful.

EDIT [29-Jan-09] v1.2 released (ZIP only) links updated. ClickOnce is still 1.1 as there seem to be some network connectivity issues when the application is started via ClickOnce...
