WPF based release?

Feb 2, 2009 at 8:35 PM
I'm very excited for the WPF based release of NodeXL to make it's way to CodePlex and I'm wondering if you have any preliminary dates that you could share?  Do you expect a release anytime in the near future, or is it going to be a little farther out?

The first WPF implementation is done and is being tested right now.  If the testing goes well, there will be a new Excel Template release that uses WPF this week, followed about a week later by a complete source code release.

Excel Template users probably won't notice big differences, except that there is a new zoom feature that lets you zoom in and out of the graph in a manner similar to Google Maps.  (WPF transforms came in very handy in implementing zoom.)

Thanks for the note.  I'm looking forward to the source code release to begin investigating the feasibility of porting it to Silverlight.  I'm looking forward to checking out the zoom feature as well, it seems like it would be very handy for exploring larger networks!
