Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps


In his blog, Microsoft’s Scott Guthrie has revealed the new names for Microsoft's "Atlas" technology. More importantly, he has given a bit of a time frame for when you can expect released versions.

So when can you expect a full release of all the AJAX functionality Microsoft is building? Nobody really knows! But, Microsoft is committing to try to release the core functionality as a final product by the end of the year. Core functionality should include both server and client side features. Specifics of what is planned for the core release are forthcoming. Any features not in the core, will still be usable via the "go live" licensing.

Of course, Atlas by any other name would be several names. While many developers would like to have sent he “Atlas” code name retained in the final product, that does not seem like it is going to happen. Rather Scott announced that the products would have the following names:

Microsoft AJAX Library — The client side, JavaScript library that should be cross-platform compatible.

ASP.NET AJAX Control Extensions — The server-side functionality that is used within ASP.NET. These extensions will be a part of the next version of ASP.NET by default.

ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit — The new name for the Atlas Control Toolkit.

Have you already been coding AJAX functionality? Then you should be aware that the use of the <atlas:> tag will be changing. You will need to change all of these to <asp:> for the final product. This change, however, should have been expected.
