The WPF 3D team have just started a new team blog (covering the 3D APIs in WPF, obviously). These guys have done an amazing job over a very short space of time. For a long while, WPF didn’t have any support for 3D at all (it wasn’t in the original PDC builds, for instance), and even after it was added, I remember a time when there were some discussions about whether to pull it from v1 in order to focus more resources on parts of the API that were considered more “core”. Fortunately, it stayed in, since almost all of the most exciting customer projects I’ve been involved with have incorporated 3D in some shape or another and there’s clearly a lot of interest in the creative opportunities introduced by 3D support.
I’m really writing to give you a heads-up of an exciting announcement that they’ll be making on their blog tomorrow. Ernie Booth and Karsten Januszewski also filmed a Channel 9 video with the team that will go live simultaneously; check back on their blog early afternoon Pacific time for details. I’m not saying any more – my lips are sealed – but you’ll like it
