Xamlon Ships Beta XAML Tool

La Jolla-based Xamlon released a new beta version of its tool for creating XAML-based applications today. Xamlon Pro Compact Edition beta 2 allows developers to build applications based on Microsoft's new XAML language, part of Microsoft's .NET suite of development software. Xamlon's tool enables development of applications on platforms such as Pocket PCs and smart phones. XAML is an XML-based format which allows developers to build applications without coding, and is expected to ship as a mainstay of future Microsoft operating systems. Microsoft's XAML language currently only runs on Microsoft .NET, however Xamlon's new tool extends the ability to use the XAML language on the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework for mobile devices.
