- XAML Respite! Orcas CTP is here!
Only a month after developers got a breadth of fresh air in form of the WinFX November 2005 CTP becoming part of the Windows Longhorn Platform SDK, the Visual Studio Extensions/Development Tools for WinFX December 2005 CTP with a Visual designer for XAML is indeed the best New Year gift from Microsoft one could have hoped for. The next generation Visual Studio code-named Orcas would allow developers to visually design Windows' GUI in the typical drag and drop fashion, generating XAML in the background. Download and check it out.
