We're happy to announce that Microsoft have granted us the status as a Silver Independent Software Vendor (ISV). For us, this is a nice reflection of our ongoing efforts of building a high quality software tool like Gaia Ajax. The proven result for our customers is increased productivity and quality when building complex web applications on the Microsoft stack. The partnership is based on positive feedback from customers with successful web applications developed using Gaia Ajax.

Waiting for Gaia Ajax 3.7? So do we!
We decided to go some major rewritings which we should have done a long time ago; now we're doing it. Especially the extensions controls will have a better architecture. Additionally we're doing this to improve the Visual Studio 2010 experience, as it is related to the actual code in each control.
Regarding the nightly build server, we expect this to be up in a couple of weeks. We took it down because of the major changes in the core library.
We'd like to say we are very sorry for the broken promises, but we want to deliver solid software to our users; it costs quite an amount of hour for us to make you save even more development hours.

We're moving fast towards a final release. Current code is more and more stable, but we'd like the final release to be top quality and that's why we are releasing a beta.
Work done between Alpha and Beta:
- Setup is now signed; no more warnings in Vista/Windows 7
- Even more IE6 compatible, specially in regards to modality
- Upgraded to Prototype 1.6.1
- New properties on AspectDraggable: MakeGhost, UseDocumentBody, DragCssClass and DeepCopy. AspectDraggable with Ghosting, Dashboard sample and TreeView with drag and drop are demonstrating these new features.
- More brand new samples:
- Setup now has 3.6 design
- Adaptive rendering has changed name to DRIMR: Dynamic, Removals, Insertions, Moves & Replacements
What is the DRIMR technology? Read this blog post by Jan Blomquist
- Fixed issue with Gaia controls that triggered validator controls incorrectly
- DateTimePicker and AutoCompleter now appear in ControlToValidate list in validators
- Bug fixes

Gaia Ajax is a powerful web platform for both complex enterprise applications and fast-up-and-running web sites. In many ways Gaia Ajax completes what many developers are missing on the ASP.NET platform both in regards to how easy it should be to create a rich and responsive web experience, but also how to unleash the highest productivity in your daily development. Our customers say they increase their productivity by 30-60% when developing with Gaia compared to other approaches towards web development.
We're happy to announce two brand new courses this year. Based
on the feedback we have received, we have split the courses into two different levels:
Introduction to Gaia Ajax and Advanced Ajax development with Gaia Ajax. Each course goes over two days.
28-29th of September

In good Gaiaware tradition we're spreading a refreshing summer breeze:
One Developer License of Gaia Ajax 3.5 "Themis" + One Developer License on the upcoming 3.6 (read more below on what's coming) for as little as $145. It also includes 2 x 1 month of support, 1 month of email support from purchase date on 3.5, as well as 1 month of support on 3.6 from release date.
What's coming in Gaia Ajax 3.6?
We have been working on 3.6 for a while already. It will be a great new step in the Gaia experience, making it even easier and more fun to create the next generation web applications. Here's what we're adding:
- Aspect Binding
Now you can add behaviours and events declarative to the Gaia controls. Want to set your Gaia Window modal? Just add the property Modal="True" and it is done! Subscribe to events like OnClick, OnDoubleClick, OnBlur, OnFocused, OnMouseOver, OnMouseOut, OnSelect ++ and your ASP.NET web application will never be the same.
- New Gaia Effect library
Faster and more effect options to choose from. Enjoy parallel and queued effects.
- New Gaia History control
Make friends with the browser navigation in your Ajax app.
- New skins coming
Office, IGaia, Portal and Social
- New and richer GMap control
We have spent some time on our Google Maps integration. Zoom, catch click events, add InfoWindows and pan to new coordinates. Finally Google Maps is for everyone!
- New Gaia Ajax ImageMap control
Just like the ASP.NET ImageMap control.
- Advanced keyboard mapping
Add keyboard integration to your web application. Another reason to go from desktop to web...
- More features and events to Calendar and DateTimePicker
We have added properties like FirstDayOfWeek and VisibleDate, and events like OnCalendarDayClicking and OnDayRender
In the work with revamping the Gaia Effects, we have moved script.aculo.us out of the core.
Have a nice summer!

Recently we decided to add a searching feature for the different sites we run on gaiaware.net: main site, blogs, forum, tracker, docs and API reference. We wanted to be able to search each site separately and still have all the results presented in a intuitive way. And of course, it should be built using Gaia Ajax, so it could be quickly developed (our customers say they increase the productivity by 30-50% on the ASP.NET platform when using Gaia Ajax) and give a responsive and ajaxified user experience.
We have purchased a Google Site Search subscription so we don't have to reinvent the wheel again and make our own site spider. The Google Site Search gives us the search results in XML, and we can parse and present them in any way we would like.
The challenge: multiple search sources with ASP.NET
Since we wanted to present the results from each sub site in separate sections, we needed to overcome some limitations of what Google Site Search gives us. E.g. you can return max 20 results per search. Since we wanted to separate the results in each sub domain (e.g. forum.gaiaware.net) we needed to use the useful "site:" parameter in a Google query. That meant that we needed to fire off 5-6 Google searches for each search we executed on our own page. Our immediate concern was how long time it would take to perform so many Google searches, return them, parse them and present them on our ASP.NET page.

Dino Esposito has written an article on DotNetSlackers with an oveview of different Ajax Web Architectures. The article covers how Gaia Ajax fits into a "Active Server Pages" pattern, and why Gaia is a solid architecture for your next web application.
Gaia Ajax is an Ajax toolbox for ASP.NET and Mono. The library is dual licensed, where you can use the GPL license for building open source projects, and for your proprietary projects you can obtain a commercial license.
