This is cool! Wouldn't it be great to have an Avalon design tool that runs within Visual Studio 2005? Unless you love hand-editing XAML files (and I do, but only up to a certain size), you should try MOBIFORM's updated version of Aurora. This release runs on our Avalon Beta 1 RC. Here's a list of some updated and/or new features from today's announcement:

  • Visual Studio 2005 integration
  • Overhauled adorner system
  • Improved grid support
  • Theme (Application skinning)
  • More clipart
  • Drive/Folder/File custom control
  • Plug-in architecture for expanding the default feature set
  • Full command system, to support undo/redo
  • Edit XAML documents used in Visual Studio projects
