The future of WPF

October 28, 2010

Pete Brown, a WPF Program Manager at Microsoft, recently posted an interesting collection of facts and thoughts about the future of WPF. With all the hype that Silverlight has, and now HTML 5, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that WPF is still growing and evolving.  Granted, the platform hit maturity years ago, so the enhancements we are seeing now don’t have the same flash and appeal as a newer technology’s vNext features.  But, in my mind, that is a good thing.  Hype is just marketing in effect.  When I am developing an application I would rather have a stable, robust, mature technology at my disposal.

Long live WPF!
