Wikipedia is turning out to be a very useful mechanism for discovering what future things are coming out of Windows Live because Microsoft seem to be announcing stuff on there before anywhere else. As I mentioned recently there is some info up there about Live Groups and today I stumbled on something called Photozoom. Its a browser based tool that allows you to, well, zoom in on photos. Under the covers it uses Seadragon and judging by the following quote it is going to be embedded in Silverlight at some point in the future.
- Microsoft has not released this technology preview to the public yet as the currently available alpha and beta builds of Silverlight do not feature the zooming feature that is required for PhotoZoom
Just to prove that this isn’t just vaporware a screen shot is included here.
UPDATE: Looks like Liveside were way ahead of me on this one.
