AJAX 4.0 - Preview

Like me I am sure you are waiting eagerly for service pack 1 for .NET 3.5, which I think has been slow to arrive in this RTM form or am I just too impatient?  The main reason I need the service pack is that there are some official releases of new AJAX features I want to take advantage of.

While I am still waiting for service pack 1 the Microsoft ASP.NET team are steaming ahead with development and have released a preview version of AJAX framework 4.0, this release includes many enhancements specifically;

  • Client-side template rendering
  • Declarative instantiation of behaviors and controls
  • DataView control
  • Markup extensions
  • Bindings
  • To get your hands in this preview visit the ASP.NET CodePlex site.
