Since its last court appearance in mid-November, Microsoft has "fallen significantly behind" in responding to concerns raised by a technical committee charged with overseeing the program's documentation project, according to the Washington, D.C., court document.

The project, known as Troika, is intended to be an automated system that can validate the accuracy of the technical documentation by comparing it to actual network traffic, Microsoft has said. The software giant originally expected to complete the project by February 2006.

Microsoft must "dramatically increase the resources devoted to responding to technical documentation issues," the number of which continues to grow, the prosecutors said.
