Scott Guthrie ~ ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 Source Code Released

Just found the following post from Scott. I stil find it hard to think that Microsoft are giving stuff away free.

As I mentioned last week when ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 shipped, we are publishing the full source code to the ASP.NET AJAX product.  This includes the source to the server-side ASP.NET integration (including the UpdatePanel, UpdateProgress, and ScriptManager controls, as well as the source to the Network Serialization code).

The client-side ASP.NET AJAX JavaScript library (which we also call the “Microsoft AJAX Library”) is being released under the Microsoft Permissive License (Ms-PL).  This grants developers the right to freely customize/modify the library, as well as to redistribute the derivative versions of the JavaScript library for both commercial and non-commercial purposes. 

The code for the server-side ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 implementation was released this morning.  You can download it here.  It is being released under the Microsoft Reference License (Ms-RL).  Included with the source code are debugger symbols for the shipped binary, which will allow you to step from your own code into the ASP. NET AJAX library while debugging, with line number and symbol data preserved.  Note that the setup installs the source code locally on your machine within the “\Program Files\Microsoft ASP.NET\ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions\v1.0.61025\Source” directory.

You can also obviously download (and modify) the source code for the ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit.  It is built as a collaborative CodePlex Project that both Microsoft and non-Microsoft developers contribute code and work on together.



P.S. I’m hoping on a plane to Europe in an hour for my presentations in Belgium and the UK, and will be out the rest of this week (it only took me 3 frantic hours to find my passport last night — sheesh).  As a result there will be some delays with blog comments (and my responses to them) while I’m away.
