This is the final 1.0 version of the AJAX framework, formerly known as Atlas,Â that Microsoft has developed for using with ASP.NET.
For those of you unfamiliar with ASP.NET AJAX project, here is a brief explanation, made by Scott Guthrie, the main architect of ASP.NET and a dozen of other technologies delivered by Microsoft:
ASP.NET AJAX is available for free, and can be used with ASP.NET 2.0 and VS 2005. It is a fully supported Microsoft product, and is backed by a standard 10 year Microsoft support license (with Microsoft Product Support available via phone 24 hours a day x 7 days a week).Â
And this is not all! In addition Microsoft has released a toolkit of over 30 free ASP.NET AJAX enabled controls under the name ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit. Check out a live examples published here.
All this is delivered for free from Microsoft! Here are the links for downloading:
