WPF/E SDK CTP with AJAX and XAML now available

What was that in English? The Windows Presentation Foundation / Everywhere (WPF/E) Software Development Kit (SDK) Community Technology Preview (CTP) with Asynchronous Javascript and XML (AJAX) and Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) is now available for download. It was actually released earlier in the month, but it appears to have been updated just before Christmas.

The “WPF/E” (codename) Software Development Kit, enables you to build web pages and web applications that include rich content such as vector-based graphics, 2D animation, high fidelity text, audio and video and use JavaScript (AJAX) to interact with the page content and your server. The SDK contains documentation, sample code and tools that can be used by designers and developers. In order to view the application, the user’s browser need to be enhanced with the appropriate “WPF/E” (codename) package as linked below. To assist with the development process we recommend using Visual Studio 2005 in addition to this SDK. To help with design, we recommend using Microsoft Expression Design and Microsoft Expression Blend. In order to integrate the end result with web pages we recommend using Microsoft Expression Web.”

This will help get you started with Expression Blend (and to a lesser extent, Expression Design).
