Acropolis CTP 1 available

A few weeks ago I mentioned Acropolis on my blog as one of the technologies that were about to be announced at TechEd US. Today the first CTP of the technology has been released on So what's it all about?

  • Componentized application architecture based on "parts", allowing for composition of apps based on connectable building blocks
  • Nice split between presentation logic and underlying business logic à la MVC
  • Theme support for applications allowing for much richer user experiences, even in a user-based manner
  • Integration of Acropolis-based applications with Office and other hosts
  • Easy deployment, management and updating of/for applications

If you have Orcas Beta 1 on your machine already, you can take a jumpstart with Acropolis right now. Download it over here and make sure to grab the help files too. Enjoy! | Digg It | Technorati | Blinklist | Furl | reddit | DotNetKicks
