About ASP.NET AJAX Futures January CTP

First, let's take a look at the ASP.NET AJAX framework architecture (Figure 1):

Figure 1: The ASP.NET AJAX Framework architecture

Generally, as far as ASP.NET AJAX (called 'MS AJAX' later in this series) framework is concerned, we refer to the three components as follows:

·         ASP.NET AJAX Essential Components, which corresponds to the assemblies System.Web.Extensions.dll and System.Web.Extensions.Design.dll with three files: MicrosoftAjax.js, MicrosoftAjaxTimer.js, and MicrosoftAjaxWebForms.js inside them.

·         ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit (with no hint about it in Figure 1), which provides both ready-to-run samples and a powerful SDK to simplify creating custom ASP.NET AJAX controls and extenders.

·         ASP.NET AJAX Futures January CTP (recently replaced by a May release, with the January one still available), which corresponds to the assembly Microsoft.Web.Preview.dll which contains three files: PreviewScript.js, PreviewGlitz.js, and PreviewDragDrop.js.

The ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Futures January CTP provides additional features and functionality that work alongside the ASP.NET AJAX Extensions. Together, these releases enable development scenarios supported in the earlier ASP.NET AJAX CTP releases in addition to newly added functionality.

To follow along with the samples in this series, you must first have ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions 1.0 installed on your computer. Next, you can easily install the ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Futures January CTP by downloading ASPAJAXCTP.msi and running it on your computer. Please carefully read the release notes which are displayed following installation for more information on using the ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Futures January CTP with your applications.

Author's Note: Recently, Microsoft has just released another newer version named ASP.NET Futures May 2007 ("Futures") which contains an early developer preview of features (especially the previous ASP.NET AJAX Futures January CTPdiscussed here), as well as provides new features including ASP.NET Silverlight server controls, new functionality for ASP.NET AJAX Extensions, dynamic data controls, enhancements to dynamic languages, and more.

Now, since our main interests lie in the ASP.NET AJAX Futures January CTP, let's do further research into it.
