Well done, iView

We congratulate iView Multimedia for reconsidering their decision to drop support for legacy IPTC metadata.

When iView released version 3.1 of iView Media Pro, their application only stored metadata using the XMP/IPTC Core schema, and did not also store the metadata in the older, legacy IPTC (Image Resource Block) format. After receiving feedback from their users about how important it was to be storing metadata in both of these formats, iView restored this capability within a couple of weeks in version 3.1.1.

[note: on June 27, 2006 iView Multimedia announced that they were being acquired by Microsoft]
