Learning new technologies is always some part fun, some excitement but also can cause some frustration when something doesn't work like you would expect it. For the first part there are a huge amount of books available but Microsoft is also being busy creating videos for their ASP.NET technology and since recently also for the upcoming Atlas technology. You can find the videos here.

Of course, when things get frustrating and need help you can always visit the ASP.NET forums.

Dynamic updatepanels, bugfixes, ...

I just read it on Nikhil's blog and downloaded it from the the Atlas site.

Details of the new CTP:


  • UpdatePanels can be added to a page dynamically throughout the page lifecycle, including UpdatePanels inside templates. UpdatePanels now also work inside WebParts, and WebParts can be inside UpdatePanels.
  • UpdatePanel will preserve cookies set during an async postback when Response.Redirect() is called. This fixes Login control scenarios where an authorization cookie is set and the user gets redirected to the previous page.


  • ServiceMethod uses default error handler if none specified.
  • XsltBridgeTransformer now works with VirtualPathProviders
  • DBNull.Value now should be serialized as null
  • ServiceReferences now support optional InlineProxy attribute for generating service proxies in the page rather than through a serviceurl/js script reference.
  • Fix for scenarios where web service proxy contained the wrong port (webfarms, port forwarding)

Drag and Drop:

  • Drag and drop will no longer produce debug output
  • Interactive HTML elements (input, button, textarea, select, label, anchors with an href) can no longer be dragged directly

Miscellaneous Changes:

  • Date.toFormattedString improvements
  • Client-side data: SaveData fix for strongly-typed DataSets


I for one hope that the RTM version is coming close.

Grz, Kris.
