.NET Framework 3.0 was WinFX…


The .NET Framework is an immensely successful programming model that has strong positive connotations among customers, developers, and partners. Effectively immediately, we are renaming “WinFX” to “.NET Framework 3.0” because of the strong affinity developers have with the .NET Framework brand name. All WinFX components will now be included within the .NET Framework 3.0. There is no change to the ship schedule of Windows Vista or the .NET Framework 3.0 and the .NET Framework 3.0 will still ship in Windows Vista. Apart from the branding change, the plan of record has not changed whatsoever.

The change is in name only and will not affect the
technologies being delivered as part of the product. The .NET Framework
3.0 is still comprised of the existing .NET Framework 2.0 components,
including ASP.NET, WinForms, ADO.NET, additional base class libraries
and the CLR, as well as new developer-focused innovative technologies
in WPF, WCF, WF and WCS:
