I had the good fortune of attending a lab with the WPF team on campus last week, and came away with some information I'd like to share with you all.

For those of you developing on the .NET 3.0 version of WPF, you should strongly consider a port to .NET 3.5, because:

  • It's quick and painless
  • It's almost production
  • It provides some bug fixes and performance enhancements which should benefit your app
  • It adds better support for 3D apps, including the capability of mapping a fully interactive 2D viewbox to a surface within a Viewport3D

You can get a look at all this via the Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 that's posted on the Microsoft site.

Enjoy!
