WPF/E

6:09 pm Microsoft, Programming, Tech

Last week at the Mix ’06 Conference, Microsoft announced WPF/E, or Windows Presentation Foundation/Everywhere.

From Mike Harsh’s Blog:

“So
what is WPF/E? It is a cross-platform, cross-browser web technology
that supports a subset of WPF XAML. WPF/E also has a friction-free
install model and the download size we’re targeting is very small. WPF/E supports programmability through javascript for tight browser
integration. The WPF/E package also contains a small, cross platform
subset of the CLR and .NET Framework that can run C# or VB.NET code. Yes, we are bringing C# programming to the Mac.”

I am absolutely thrilled by this news.
I can’t wait to write cross platform, firefox compatible rich applications in .NET!
