Yes, this is a trivial matter.
I had no problem reading and understanding the content of the release notes, and applaud the writer's efforts to bring a bit of variety into our lives! There is always resistance to change and new ideas - keep it up Intel!
I can't download the release notes .docx file from intel link:
When I press the link (in intel page) I get a ZIP file called "Release Notes 2.1.zip" with a lot o XML files inside, but no DOCX file
If you have the correct link pls post it...
Link you posted works fine here. Maybe a browser issue? Firefox grabs it OK but seen other browsers in the past struggle with the spaces replaced with %
I can't get it either (just get a bunch of xml files), and also tried that link. I'm on IE8.
It's a browser issue, I get a .zip file in Win7 Internet Explorer.
Replacing %20 with spaces didn't work either, I get the same zip file.
I tried Chrome and downloaded the .DOCX file.
Thanks for your help Ziggy.
Er, OK, so it's an MS format file that can only be downloaded in a non-MS browser! An interesting approach.
Well at least I know how to get it now - thanks all for the info.
The problems you're having with the Microsoft Word 2007 files is a good example of why Intel was ill-advised to use this file format for distributing technical information.
.docx files are actually zip files and can be opened as such by any zip program. Inside, you'll find a collection of .xml files, which is what you are reporting. (However those files are tough to read too!)
If you have Microsoft Word 2003, you can download their "Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats" from here:
Once installed, you should be able to open the file in Word 2003, although rather than just clicking the file's link on the Intel site, you may have to right-click and save it to your desktop and then manually open it using Word's File, Open menu...
I've also changed the name of this thread to be a bit less alarmist!
Great info, I renamed the .zip file to .docx and it worked
tfield98, I've been using Office 2007 or over a year and didn't realise until now that docx was actually a zip. Thanks for the info!
I agree with the OP. The release notes have no need to be in anything other than a standard text format. Ditto on the cursive font.
