During my many Windows Presentation Foundation sessions i have noted that we would have versions of WPF that is available for non windows machines! Well a beta of this is now finally available: WPF/E” (codename) Software Development Kit (SDK) Community Technology Preview

Another question i typically recieved -and avoided was the general availability luckily this included in the description on the WPF/e MSDN Web Site which i have included below:

“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.
