Intel announced new software development tools and resources through its Intel Software Network. These are to help Apple developers take advantage of Intel Core Duo processor technologies to maximize application performance on the new Intel–based Mac platforms.
The special beta versions of the Intel Fortran Compiler, Intel C++ Compiler, Intel Math Kernel Library and Intel Integrated Performance Primitives are available now. Intel will also provide other resources to assist with software optimization, dual core threading and migration information.
These development tools are integrated into Apple’s Xcode development environment and offer an alternative to existing tools and compilers. Intel augments these compilers with advanced support for threading through OpenMP and auto–parallelism capabilities.
The suite of development tools from Intel will be available for purchase in the second quarter of 2006, and are now available for free trial in the special beta program.
As the film camera market shrinks and the popularity of compact digital cameras increases, demand for products that offer advanced features and extra value is growing rapidly. Additionally, the demand for high performance digital SLR cameras is also steadily increasing as customers shift from film SLRs or upgrade from compact digital cameras.
With film cameras accounting for an ever smaller percentage of Nikon's total sales volume, the company has decided to concentrate more on the digital camera business.
The measures that Nikon will adopt include discontinuing production of all large format Nikkor lenses and enlarging lenses, as well as several film camera bodies, manual focus Nikkor interchangeable lenses and related accessories. Sales of these products will cease as supplies are depleted.
Importantly, Nikon's film camera business will continue with flagship models F6 and FM10. Additionally, Nikon will continue to produce the manual focus 85mm f/2.8D PC Micro-Nikkor.
Nikon will offer continued post-sale service for products whose production has ceased for a period of 10 years from Nikon's last date of sale.
