Throughout XPF’s beta we want to keep everyone in the loop so we thought we would set out a high-level roadmap to share our current plans.
These plans are not set in stone - we’re an agile shop and are always adapting to change as users give feedback about how the product is being used and make feature suggestions.
We really want your feedback!
We’ve yet to decide exactly what will constitute the version 1 release, but it’s fair to say that the vast majority of the planned features listed below will be there.
(in order of priority)
UIElement (base class)
Panel (base class)
ItemsControl (with ItemTemplate)
Data Binding (one and two-way)
Grid: Star Grid Lengths
Grid: Row/Column Spanning
TextBlock: Default Font
ItemsControl: Control Template
ScrollViewer: Scroll Bars
Visual State Manager
The finer details of XPF’s licensing model are still being worked on, but we’re really happy to be able to say that XPF will be free to use if you are an individual developing non-commercial or open source applications.
Once again, your feedback is really important to us. If there’s a feature you don’t see listed, or want one feature developed first over another, then let us know. We’re also really interested to see how XPF is being used, so if you’ve got any examples then please do get in contact – we’re already hearing some great stories.
