Atlas Framework Review
Atlas is the new .NET Framework for the UI. The latest release includes support for the ever-popular AJAX technology, webservices, plus brings delcarative support for manipulating elements of the UI.
Under the hood, Atlas brings "object orientation" to a scripting language. While OOP execution is a little different than in a native .NET language, Atlas does add a layer to impose the restrictions of an object oriented environment. With Atlas you may define types using age-old OOP principles such as inhertiance, interfaces, abstract classes, events and more.
