Native DWF viewing in Windows Vista

Autodesk and Microsoft cooperated on development of an extended DWF format employing the XPS (XML Paper Specification). The resulting .dwfx files can be natively viewed in Windows Vista and other operating systems supporting XPS viewers.
The number of users who can directly view DWF format files will grow substantially in this way - at least with the number of Vista users. DWF Viewer won't be needed anymore in most situations - so you will not need to download and install any application to view CAD data sent by an AutoCAD user (and of course also users of Revit, Inventor, etc).
This confirms the "CAD publishing standard" status for DWF format.
