Microsoft said in a court filing Thursday that it is has taken new steps to meet obligations under its 2002 antitrust settlement with the U.S. government. A federal judge and prosecutors recently criticized the company for sluggishness in developing technical documentation for licensees of its Microsoft Communications Protocol Program, designed to assist third-party developers in building server software that works with Windows.
Microsoft said it had shipped prerelease versions of parsers, along with instructional materials, to each of its 26 licensees and had recruited additional technical support staff to field questions. It said it also had assigned additional engineers to addressing bugs in the ongoing parser development, which it hopes to release in final form by July.
