I am delighted to broadcast that earlier today our team released the "Syndicated Client Experiences (SCE) Starter Kit and Reader SDK", affectionately known as "Starter Kit".
The "Starter Kit" is a generalized application skeleton, that allows you as a developer to create reader applications similar to the popular NY Times Reader (#25 in PC World's list of 100 Best Products of 2007). The Kit combines the power of WPF with standardized communication protocols (RSS) to deliver a superior occasionally connected reading experience.
A few existing applications, based on the Starter Kit:
- NY Times Reader (to be entirely correct, the "Starter Kit" is a generalized version of the NY Times Reader)
- MSDN Reader
Check it out. The Kit comes with complete source code.
