Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX version 1.0 Beta Released

'ATLAS', Microsoft's AJAX Framework, has changed names, the codename 'ATLAS' is no longer used.
Instead Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX is the official name. The 1.0 Beta version is now released. Download from here
ASP.NET AJAX is a free framework for creating client-centric, interactive Web applications that work across many popular browsers and on any server platform.

More information can be found here:
Microsoft claims the AJAX framework is platform independent. In fact I quote: 'The Microsoft AJAX Library is a standalone collection of the standards-based Javascript classes included in ASP.NET AJAX. It’s supported by most popular browsers and can be used to build client-centric Web applications that integrate with any backend data provider.'

There is a migration guide in case you already implemented one of the ATLAS Beta's or the CTP that was released not that long ago. This guide is available here.
Read the Changes between the ASP.NET AJAX (“Atlas”) CTP and the v1.0 Beta Release whitepaper which is also available as a Word document and a PDF document.
