ASP.NET AJAX 4.0 CodePlex Preview 1
ASP.NET AJAX 4.0 Preview 1 was released on July 21.
This release contains a preview version of the following features (that are also described in our Roadmap document: http://www.codeplex.com/aspnet/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=14924):
* Client-side template rendering
* Declarative instantiation of behaviors and controls
* DataView control
* Markup extensions
One good news for JSON lovers, this is from release notes:
In the next version of ASP.NET AJAX, we plan on enabling new client-side data scenarios for both page and component developers. You will be able to get JSON data from the server and present it as HTML on the client in a highly manageable and performant way.
