Ward just did an excellent post sharing his thoughts on our new WPF Composite Client, Acropolis and CAB. If you don’t know Ward and you are a CAB customer, you should. Ward is the VP of Product Management for IdeaBlade, one of our partners and the makers of DevForce.
We just announced a new deliverable called WPF Composite Client. Due to the wonders of the blogosphere this is actually showing up as having been posted several days ago. Note to self, don’t post drafts anymore. Anyway, check out the “real”
My colleague J.D. just posted that we’ve shipped to MSDN the Performance Testing guidance for Web Applications. This is the same guidance that was previously available on CodePlex.
