Также обновился Expression Blend 3:

New Features in Expression Blend 3: The designer-developer workflow took another major step forward today with major innovations in Expression Blend 3 including: SketchFlow, a rapid prototyping capability that makes it easy to communicate design intent to stakeholders; design time sample data that enables the design and testing of applications without access to live data; direct import of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator files; behaviors, extensible and reusable components that add interactivity to applications without writing code; a full code editor supporting C#, VB and XAML; and many more features that support an improved design and development experience. Features include:

  • SketchFlow. SketchFlow introduces a new set of features designed to make it easier for you to experiment with dynamic user experiences and create compelling prototypes. SketchFlow also helps communicate design ideas to other stakeholders, and makes it easier to collect in-context annotated feedback. SketchFlow enables the navigation and composition of an application to be modeled in a very visual manner from a simple prototype that uses a series of sketches, to something much more evolved. A prototype can be made as real and interactive as it needs to be to communicate design intent and SketchFlow can leverage all the existing features of Expression Blend.
  • Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator import. The powerful importers for both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator enable smooth integration with workflows the designer already has in place. The designer has freedom to view and import Photoshop files layer by layer. Layers can be easily regrouped and elements retain their original formats; layers, layer positions, editable text and vectors remain available for editing within Expression Blend.
  • Behaviors. Add interactivity to your application, without having to write code. Behaviors can encapsulate complex design interactions into reusable components which can be directly applied to a user interface element in the application. Developers have access to a rich API that they can use to write their own triggers, actions, and behaviors for use in their Silverlight and WPF projects.
  • Sample data. Design time sample data makes it easy to build data-connected applications without access to live data. You can generate sample data or import sample data from an XML file and is available to controls on the artboard at design-time. You can extensively customize your sample data details, and you can easily switch between using sample data and using live data at run-time.
  • Improved design and development experience. Expression Blend 3 includes many features that improve the overall design experience including a brand new design surface making Blend more accessible to visual designers. Team Foundation Server support allows easier integration of the Blend user into Team System. Improved animation and easing functions, 3D transforms, visual effects and an improved visual state manager enable a great tooling experience.

Я это все к чему, ребята из макрософт очень постарались и если они будут двигаться такими темпами то Flex потеряет свою популярность и мы останемся без штанов :). Придет армия дотнетчиков и захватит мир. И придется переквалифицироваться обратно во флешеров или учить Silverlight. Лично я не сильно хочу иметь дело с продуктами MS, но кто знает.

    Учить Silverlight или не учить? Вот в чем вопрос!

  3. Ага, скоро мы заполоним мир. Смерть флешу!

  4. Как только они сделают нормальное (а-ля винда) сглаживание шрифтов, так сразу начну изучать Silverlight. Единый язык и платформа – хорошо. Еще бы линуксовую версию – и было бы счастье 🙂

  5. Думаю следует подождать Gumbo и Flash Catalyst, а потом уже делать выводы…

  6. Мне вот очень не понятна строка “обратно переквалифицироваться в флешеров” Почему обратно? Обидно автор, обидно.

  7. Демоны из МайКрософта!!! Что творят, а?
    Блин, пусть Адоби тусит с Нвидия и Ати, хай мост между графическими процами карт строят. Вот это будет блин движуха.
