Microsoft Gives 'Atlas' a New Name

Microsoft on Monday officially gave a name to its new AJAX technologies formerly known as "Atlas." Atlas is being split into three distinct products, with the server-side functionality now dubbed: ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions. The final versions are slated to ship by the end of the year.

Atlas is designed to simplify the creation of ASP 2.0-based Web sites that take advantage of advanced JavaScript and XML functionality. On the client-side, the technology will be called the Microsoft AJAX Library, which integrates with the server-based Extensions. Microsoft has also renamed the "Atlas" Control Toolkit to the ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit.
