In case missed the news today, it is according to Microsoft that Visual Studio 2008 and Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 will be released this month. The link to this news is here.
This is a major step forward for the WPF/XAML developers because the inclusion of “Cider” — The much improved visual layout and designer support inside Visual Studio. Hope the release of VS 2008 will drive the adoption rate of WPF and XAML-based markup systems higher.
I will report more on new and improved features in WPF 3.5 once I can get a final release copy of VS 2008 and .Net Framework 3.5.
