November 2004 Avalon CTP Released
Just in case you haven’t noticed, MSDN Subscribers should download the Avalon Community Technology Preview, which enables Avalon to run under Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 and to integrate with Visual Studio 2005. Also, you can access the WinFX SDK that reference Avalon online. And as if that weren’t enough, the Avalon evangelist and product teams have teamed up to give you an overview of what’s new in this pre-release of Avalon. Of course, we’re still on the way to beta, let alone an RTM of Avalon, so there’s still plenty of time to give the Avalon team feedback about what you love and don’t love in the Avalon newsgroup.
And as if that we’re enough, here’s some views and news about the Avalon CTP:
