The guys at Xamlon release a new beta of their XAML rendering engine for .Net 1.1 and it is absolutely incredible. Adam Kinney has a great clock example on his blog, and Kevin Lindsey published a knowledge base article on how to use the XamlPad application to convert Illustrator CS files (as SVG) to XAML.
The new beta also features VS.Net 2k3 integration (designing forms with XAML), declarative 3-D support, great declarative coding samples, and a simple XAML editor.
I’ve got to hand it to Paul Colton and his staff (Kevin, Adam, and Ingo Muschenetz), they have done a great job. If you want to see what all the XAML hype is about, but can’t wait for Longhorn, definitely check this out. I’ll have to dedicate some time and create some more examples. I wonder who is going to finish the XAML based Solitaire game first, Chris Sells or the Xamlon guys?
