Windows Presentation Foundation/Everywhere CTP on the Loose

A rebranding will happen soon, but for now Windows Presentation Foundation/Everywhere (WPF/E, for short) remains the most awkwardly named, anxiously awaited technology since Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office Second Edition (VSTO 2005 SE). I mean, you can't make this stuff up.

The future Adobe Flash killer and Web-savvy platform for slick 3D, video and vector graphics got a fresh debut earlier this week, with the CTP release of the WPF/E software development kit. The SDK lets developers build animation, video and audio-laced content for the Web, using standard AJAX and XAML. The SDK includes documentation, code samples and tools for getting down to work. You can download it here.

We're seeing some early stabs at rich WPF/E sites, including one that lets you drag and drop accessories onto the image of a dog. The same folks also offer a useful breakout of all the new APIs in the latest CTP. You can find that here.

Have you worked with the new WPF/E CTP or tried any of the demos? Tell us your experiences and we may publish them in a future issue of Redmond Developer News. E-mail me at [email protected].
