Scott Guthrie just posted the news that ASP.NET AJAX Beta 1 is released. No not the final product but Beta 1! It is kind of hard to believe that the product is just at the Beta 1 stage. After all it has been talked about so much that it almost sounds like its been around for years and version 5 is about to be released. But no it is all hype so far. But that said I think it’s a very exciting product that will help ASP.NET developers create much more dynamic sites. But like anything else out there with a lot of power it also opens the door to a lot of misuse, lets hope this doesn’t happen to much and give a very useful product a bad name.
See http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2006/10/20/ASP.NET-AJAX-Beta-1-Released.aspx for the details.
