Acropolis is the WPF answer to CAB and Smart clients, and more

First off, it should be mentioned that it is a code name, and very much alpha as at November 2007.

What does it do?

  1. Well it sits on top of WPF, and enables the building of smart clients (for a definition of a smart client, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smart_client)
  2. You can create MDI applications with it
  3. It provides the plumbing for the applications you want to write, without you having to do it yourself
  4. There are numerous extension points, as well as the opportunity to subclass existing functionality
  5. It has a designer in Visual Studio (2008 of course)
