.net framework 3.0, wpf.netfx3.com & xaml schema uri impact
"WinFX" renamed .Net Framework 3.0
A few days ago we announced that "WinFX" will no longer be used as the brand for WPF, WCF, WF and "InfoCard". We are now rebranding "WinFX" to ".Net Framework 3.0".
Soma made the announcement on his blog.
Jason Zander added some more details.
New .Net Framework 3.0 and WPF Content on the Web
I was fine with this. I think the masses of .Net developers will understand a new version of .Net more than a related but seperately named set of technologies.
This late in the game though, I didn’t want to see our team spending much time changing all but the essential parts of the product for this. We didn’t want to introduce any breaking changes to the developers out there because of this.
XAML Schema Uris Will Still Have WinFX in Them (for our first version)
Because of this, our first version schema URIs will still contain the term "winfx" (http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation). Next version, when we have to come up with a new URI due to the year change, we’ll change the "winfx" to something like "netfx".
So, your XAML files will still work, we don’t need to go through more major changes of every xaml file in the wild.
Hope you like that decision…
