A new version of Microsoft Producer
for PowerPoint was released on the Microsoft Download Center on May 3rd, 2010. Microsoft Producer is a tool designed to enable Office PowerPoint customers to publish rich media presentations on the web. In this sense, the utility allows users to create presentations containing audio, video, slides, and images that can be accessed through a browser. Producer is now tailored to the latest iteration of PowerPoint, which was released to manufacturing on April 15th, 2010, along with the rest of the Office 2010 productivity suite.
At the same time, the utility is also designed to patch a security vulnerability in the previous version of Producer. The patch was added to “MS10-016
, a Windows Movie Maker bulletin we released in March 2010. At the time, we did not have an update for Microsoft Producer 2003. Today we have released a new version of Microsoft Producer that replaces the old version. We recommend that all customers using Producer 2003 upgrade to the new version,” Carlene Chmaj
, from the Microsoft Security Response team, revealed.
