Aurora XAML Designer for .NET 3.0 V2.0
Aurora is an adaptable .NET 3.0-based graphics authoring tool that generates XAML documents.
It can be used as a graphic design program for drawing, painting and customizing unique designs or as a development tool to create user interfaces for Windows and Web applications that engage end users and enliven their desktop experience. Aurora�s flexibility allows you to choose whether you want it to run stand-alone, embedded in your own .NET application or integrated with Visual Studio 2005.
Every XAML document in Aurora is built using a series of layers. This system of layering provides you the freedom to create, embellish and transform designs and controls within various layouts. Aurora displays an always-accessible Document Tree, a visual layer-by-layer map of your document, which lets you access and edit specific layers of your XAML document without changing the entire design or application. The XAML produced by Aurora is compatible with Visual Studio .NET 3.0 applications for the desktop and Web.
