"Atlas" 1.0 Naming and Roadmap

Hot off the presses!  Scott Guthrie has announced the new names for the ASP.NET "Atlas" technologies.  The "Atlas" client script library becomes the Microsoft AJAX Library.  The server controls become the ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions.  The "Atlas" Control Toolkit becomes ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit.  

Even better news...  Scott shares that "Our goal is to ship the 'Atlas' 1.0 release around the end of this year. The plan is to first have a Beta, then an RC, and then decide on the final date based on customer feedback."

This has been in the works for a while and I am excited that we are in a position to release a supported 1.0 version by the end of the year!  Get the full details here.
