ASP.NET AJAX in .NET 3.5 and VS 2008


ASP.NET AJAX included in .NET 3.5

 Starting with the .NET Framework 3.5 release, all of these features are built-in with ASP.NET, which means you no longer have to download and install a separate ASP.NET AJAX setup when building or deploying applications.

When you create a new ASP.NET application or web-site in VS 2008 that targets the .NET 3.5 framework, VS will automatically add the appropriate AJAX registrations in your web.config file and the core ASP.NET AJAX server controls will show up in your toolbox.

The version of ASP.NET AJAX that ships with .NET 3.5 has a number of nice improvements to it – including support for using UpdatePanels with WebParts, support for WCF based JSON end-points, support for using the ASP.NET Profile, Role and Login Application Services using JavaScript, and a number of bug fixes and performance improvements.
