Release Notes

- A new XBAP online demo application is provided (the online version is the .NET 3.5 one). Most components of the Perspective library have been adapted (when required) to run in a partial trust context.
- You can now build multilingual applications that support culture changing at run time. ResourceStringExtension and ResourceStringDecorator have been enhanced to support resource loading at run time.
- Application settings can now be stored accordingly to the deployement system. For a ClickOnce application, the storage scope is Application and User. For an installed application, the scope is machine and assembly.
- SignalBinding : a binding class which throws conversion events. It prevents to write converter classes.
- XbapHelper helps you to retrieve URI parameters of an XBAP application.
- Joystick 2D control.
- Workshop3D : a ready to use viewport for 3D models, with light, moveable camera and camera control panel. The camera can be controlled by mouse (with joysticks) or by keyboard.
- New class PieSlice3D to build 3D pie charts. A contribution by Philippe Jovelin, thanks to him.
- Many 3D shapes have now default texture coordinates, so you can apply a VisualBrush, an ImageBrush or a DrawingBrush on them : Square3D (since previous versions), Polygon3D, Box3D, Bar3D, Conical3D and Spherical3D.

For maintenance reasons, the source is not available in the Source Code tab, but only in the file.

Known issue in 0.9 : Ring3D and rings from Gyroscope3D look inverted. The 0.9.1 update fixes it. If you work with sources, just add RingSculptor.cs in the Sculptors folder of Perspective.Wpf3D project, and recompile it.
