SCSF May 2007

The SCSF May 2007 release provides support for WPF. Visual Studio tooling for WPF is still in development so you need to go through a few simple steps prior to installing the factory.
Fortunately, the SCSF installer shows a prerequisites page listing the required components.

All you need is the February 2007 guidance extensions and optionally the guidance toolkit and studio extensions for WCF and WPF. Note that the factory also requires SQL 2005 Compact to enable disconnected service agents! I'm really looking forward to having a closer look at the offline capabilities.

It's interesting to note that you don't need to install the composite UI application block or enterprise library any more. The binaries are actually shipped with the factory and you have the option to install the source code. The smart client guys have done a fantastic job on the installer.
