    HI,

    Sorry we do not have a date yet, but we are working on it.

    I post information about Expression tools (which Interactive Designer / Sparkle is part of) on my blog at http://mano1.com/blog - keep an eye on it.

    You can post any Expression / Sparkle question you have, either here or on my blog.

    Best regards,

    -mano (Expression / SPARKLE)

    Potential price-point?

    I'm really concerned the only ui designer for xaml / avalon is going to end up costing too much money. ;(

    alot of it is IE only anyway

    (ive never found FF to be that good at dhml - the one area ie has always kicked but)

    *edit - actually that was back in the Netscape days - perhaps ff is better now
    Netscape wouldnt load anything dhtml

    "Nutty?"  Doesn't everyone drop acid and then leaf through a book of H.R. Giger artwork?  <shudder>

    Oh, and if your subwoofer needs a workout, click "VML," then select "08. vedic" from the menu.

    Make sure you turn your speakers wayyyy up beforehand Tongue Out

    After listening to that sound for a minute or two, I was like, "What's that smell?" and I realized it was the power transformer in my subwoofer starting to melt.  Expressionless

    Runs very smooth in both IE 6 and FF 1.5, allthough firefox seems to be a bit smoother when the images get resized...
    My System: A64 3200+ / 2GB RAM

    BTW to topic:

    I hope to see an official alpha, CTP or Beta of sparkle soon!
