ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 is here!!!


It has been a bumpy and exciting ride the last few weeks with the Web Platform and Tools group as we've been putting the finishing touches on ASP.NET AJAX.  But now, the ribbon is on the box!!!  After an amazing amount of customer input (you really did shape this product, thank you), I am thrilled to be able to announce that today we released the final, fully supported, 1.0 version of ASP.NET AJAX.  You can download it here.

This release of ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 includes all features in previous versions plus:

  • Significant bug fixing, performance and robustness work
  • Performance and scalability improvements for shared hosting scenarios.
  • Globalization fixes to ScriptManager and ScriptResource handler to support date & number parsing and UI culture fallback.
  • Updated ScriptResource handler to support automatic enabling/disabling script compression and caching.
  • Support for FireFox, Safari, IE, and Opera
  • Fully supported by Microsoft, 24x7 through PSS
  • Enhanced training capabilities made available on http://ajax.asp.net/ by Virtual Labs and Microsoft Learning Online Clinics, as well as 3rd-party reference materials and online tutorials.
  • ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions will be available under a license very similar to the Microsoft Reference License (Ms-RL) in the weeks following the release. This will enable developers to view the ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions code aiding in application debugging, maintenance and interoperability.

Check out the full announcement on the http://ajax.asp.net/ homepage.

In case you haven’t seen, Scott Guthrie also blogged a bunch of details to help you get started.  As always, keep the feedback coming.

    Hello

    Can you show an example how to use a CollapsiblePanel inside of a GridView?

    I want to display some amount of information in one row – but the error I receive is that I can not have 2 controls with same ID( sure, if the grid has more than 1 row)
