WPF 3D Announcement Today?

There’s a buzz going around that there’s some kind of big WPF 3D announcement being made todoay. I initially read about it over here on Tim Sneath’s blog. Wonder what it could be? Guess we’ll have to sit tight and keep our eyes on their blog for the news to break.

UPDATE 6:30PM ET:

So the news is out! Basically they’ve released a new control that makes that effectively enables something that people have been asking for since 3D was introduced to the API: an interactive VisualBrush for 3D content. They’ve accomplished this using some clever 3D -> 2D coordinate hackery. I had a sneaking suspicion this might be what they were announcing and even though it’s not flawless, it’s a great implementation to keep us happy until they add first class support in v2 (hopefully!).
