Ok, so I’m late with the announcement. But it’s out! Formerly called Atlas, ASP.Net AJAX is now officially version 1.0. Toolkits and other related products are available as well from the ASP.Net AJAX site. There are also demos available.
Microsoft’s ASP.Net AJAX is one of the many free AJAX frameworks already out in the market. It is designed to work well with Visual Studio 2005 and later. The concept of having a framework is to ease the job of the developer in developing the client and server-side requirements using a common discipline.
