Acropolis CTP1 Now Available

The first Community Technology Preview of Acropolis is now available.  So what is Acropolis?  It is a set of components for developers to build modular, loosely-coupled .NET client applications, similar to the web parts framework in ASP.NET 2.0.

Acropolis builds on the strength of the Windows Presentation Foundation and CTP1 includes these features:

  • Declarative Composition – allows you to declaratively program the structure of application components

  • Navigation support – manages activation and deactivation of components

  • Document Life Time support – manages the life time of a document object

  • Layout Pane  – Split style and tab style UI layout that leverages WPF

  • Transition Animation – Prepackage transitions built on WPF
