WPF/E – Microsoft’s cross-platform XAML engine that runs in a web browser

Wednesday, January 10, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

Came across this new technology piece on the MSDN called WPF/E. “WPF/E” is the Microsoft solution for delivering rich, cross-platform, interactive experiences including animation, graphics, audio, and video for the Web and beyond. Utilizing a subset of XAML (eXtensible Application Markup Language)-based Windows Presentation Foundation technology, “WPF/E” will enable the creation of content and applications that run within multiple browsers and operating systems (Windows and Macintosh) using Web standards for programmability. Consistent with Web architecture, the XAML markup is programmable using JavaScript and works well with ASP.NET AJAX. Broadly available for customers in the first half of 2007, “WPF/E” experiences will require a lightweight browser plug-in made freely available by Microsoft.

Currently the December 2006 CTP of the same is available and can be downloaded from http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/asp.net/bb187358.aspx .You can download and install the browser plug-in (1MB) and try visiting the following sites:




You can also read the following blog entry on WPF vs WPF/E: http://odetocode.com/Blogs/scott/archive/2006/12/28/9601.aspx

Something interesting to look forward to.
