Today Scott Guthrie has annonced the Atlas Roadmap. The good news is Microsoft will give full support to Atlas since they are planning to ship by the end of the year. The bad news is the cool atlas name goes.
- Atlas (Client Side) -> Microsoft Ajax Library
- Atlas (Server Side) -> ASP.NET 2.0 Ajax Extensions
- Atlas Control Toolkit -> ASP.NET Control Toolkit
Anyway more meaningful names as well. I am also surprised that they have split the client side and server side products.
