WPF/E – Right Here, Right Now


Do my eyes deceive me?

WPF/E is coming ...

MSDN has a WPF/E Dev Center, so it must be true!

“WPF/E” is Microsoft’s solution for delivering rich, cross-platform, interactive experiences including animation, graphics, audio and video for the Web and beyond. Utilizing a subset of XAML (eXtensible Application Markup Language) based Windows Presentation Foundation technology, “WPF/E” will enable the creation of content and applications that run within multiple browsers, and operating systems (Windows and Mac) using Web standards for programmability.  Consistent with web architecture, the XAML markup is programmable using Java Script and works well with ASP.NET AJAX. Broadly available for customers the first half of 2007, “WPF/E” experiences will require a lightweight browser plug-in made freely available by Microsoft."

And is the first public CTP of WPF/E really available for download ?

Santa comes early for those who want to create rich web experiences.

    Did MS pull the plug on wpf/e? I saw the dev center was up and running and now it is gone again.

    I also saw today WPF/E and FLASH 9 working along side eachother in terms of dragging and dropping data between the two.

    Amazing, and exciting at the same time.
