With the release of VS2008 approaching, there is an increasing amount of discussion about its upcoming features. These include things like new C# language capabilities, LINQ, WCF/WF improvements and new features, fancy JS/CSS editing capabilities and support for ASP.NET AJAX among other things. One big piece that seems to escape mention is WPF. Sure, from time to time someone will indicate that the VS2008 WPF designer might actually work, but no mention is made of any core platform improvements like they are with WF and WCF. Several months back I wrote a short list of what I thought would be nice improvements/additions to WPF and recently have come up with several more ideas. Many developers who work regularly with WPF have pointed out some curious missing features in the platform as well as recommended other improvements. But, alas, there is not a peep about any of this from Microsoft. Anybody have an idea about this?
