The first of the two is a quick one, mentioning the release of the Atlas Control Toolkit. It’s a collection of components and example scripts to make it easier for anyone to get into working with Atlas. It even has an SDK that comes with it for the “creation and re-use of your own custom controls and extenders”.
Their second post is the announcement of a new resource that’s coming up from O’Reilly (as written by Christian Wenz) – their first book on Atlas. According to the post, you can gain access to the evolving manuscript for the book through the O’Reilly Rough Cuts program. The book will be released in stores in July of 2006 and will be about 200 pages.
You can get complete details on Microsoft and the efforts behind their Atlas framework from the official Atlas website. The site has downloads, examples, and a community for those working with the toolkit.
