Finally, ASP.NET AJAX v1.0 Released!!!
This technology enable a developer to create next-generation interfaces with reusable AJAX components. Moreover, it enhances existing Web pages using powerful AJAX controls with support for all modern browsers such as IE, Firefox and Opera.

ASP.NET AJAX consists of the two essential downloads shown below. In the ASP.NET AJAX Downloads Page You’ll also find related downloads on this page including the Futures CTP, the sample applications, and the Microsoft AJAX Library for development on non-Windows platforms.

  • ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions 1.0
  • ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit (a shared-source community project from CodePlex consisting of samples and components that make it easier to work with AJAX-enabled controls and extenders. The Control Toolkit provides both ready-to-run samples and a SDK to simplify creating custom ASP.NET AJAX controls and extenders. Make sure you install ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 first!)

Posted by dariosantarelli on January 14, 2007

This page lists specifications for Visual Studio and .NET “Orcas”, documenting the new features you will find in CTP’s and providing an opportunity for you to give feedback. Pheraps some features specified may be cut and others may be significantly altered, but I think there are some cool news, for example about Mapping Format for Visual C#, UI Frameworks and Developer Tools Plaform.
P.S.: An XPS viewer needed!
