Today, Wolfram is officially launching the Computable Document 
Format (CDF)--a new public standard merging the simplicity of 
documents and interactivity of apps into a single, 
computation-powered knowledge container that empowers readers to 
drive content and generate results live.

CDF is an evolution of the notebook (.nb) and is the new standard 
for sharing Mathematica output--broadening accessibility of the 
Wolfram platform.

Simply save interactive papers, reports, presentations, 
infographics, and knowledge applications as CDFs in Mathematica 8 
and the free Wolfram CDF Player lets anyone interact with your 
content directly in a web browser.

Watch a brief video introduction of CDF:

See how easy it is to create CDFs in Mathematica 8:

CDF technology is already being used in some of today's most 
popular interactive publications, including Pearson Education's 
award-winning Calculus textbook by William L. Briggs and Lyle 

Start exploring the possibilities of CDF in Mathematica 8 and let 
us know how you have used it.
