From Redmond with some Web 2.0 Love - ASP.Net AJAX

Hot off the presses, Microsoft has released a v1.0 AJAX framework for it's ASP.Net offering. Here's some info from the release:

v1.0ASP.NET AJAX is a free framework for quickly creating a new generation of more efficient, more interactive and highly-personalized Web experiences that work across all the most popular browsers.

With ASP.NET AJAX, you can:

  • Create next-generation interfaces with reusable AJAX components.
  • Enhance existing Web pages using powerful AJAX controls with support for all modern browsers.
  • Continue using Visual Studio 2005 to take your ASP.NET 2.0 sites to the next level.
  • Access remote services and data directly from the browser without writing a ton of complicated script.
  • Enjoy the benefits of a free framework with 24x7 technical support provided by Microsoft.

Looks pretty interesting, and something that I'll definately need to give a whirl the next time I crack open my Visual Studio bag-o-tricks!

Check out their site (AJAX : The Official Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX Site) for the v1.0 download, some more information, examples, and other items of interest (for those of you inclined)!
