The .NET Framework 3.0 has officially been released! You can download the .NET Framework 3.0 components here.
For those who already have the .NET Framework 2.0 installed, this .NET Framework 3.0 redistributable package installs only the new Windows Vista components: Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), and Windows CardSpace (WCS, formerly “InfoCard”).
After you install it, make sure you check couple of XAML demo applications from:
Paint Factory Demo
I’m sure that both XUL and MXML fans will have something to comment about XAML and XBAPs. Maybe AJAX fans too.
