Microsoft Rallies Developers to Build Next-Generation Applications

Releases the .NET Framework 3.0, ASP.NET AJAX and more

Microsoft Corp. has unveiled new technologies that enable developers to build next- generation interactive applications for Windows Vista, the 2007 Microsoft Office system and the Web. The new technologies are designed to help developers build Web services and connected, service-oriented applications that deliver the levels of security, reliability and differentiation that business and consumers expect.

"With the release of Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system, the sky is really the limit on what developers can build -- from applications that deliver advanced data visualization to highly connected line-of-business solutions," said Scott Guthrie, general manager of the Developer Division at Microsoft, during his keynote speech at the Visual Studio Connections event. "By embracing trends such as AJAX and delivering new technologies for Windows and Microsoft Office, we are opening the door to entirely new levels of innovation in the software industry while still allowing developers to use their existing skill sets."

With easy-to-use tools and APIs designed to ensure immediate productivity and a superior user experience, developers can now begin building and testing their applications in advance of the broad availability of Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system.
