WinFX CTP’s – Monthly changes
The new approach by Microsoft to produce regular updates to their Customer Technology Previews (CTPs) is much needed. No longer do we have to wait months (or years) between releases to find code that we have developed left limping along or just plain hosed – a gibbering wreck due to namespace or library changes.
There are still changes – but with the frequency of the new drop schedule it’s easier to deal with (although with the number of CTP’s and SDK’s coming out it can be a little overwhelming).
With regards to WinFX – Rob Relyea has a cool tool that helps carry the load that can be found here.
Daniel Lehenbauer has also updated his 3D tools for WPF against the WinFX Feb CTP which includes his Blender Export tool. Ths allows you to export 3D images from Blender for use within your WinFX applications. Daniel has some great explanations and demos of using 3D with WinFX – it’s worth checking out.
