Windows Presentation Foundation/Windows Communication Foundation

Avalon is now known as the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). It consists of a display engine and a managed-code framework and was developed to unify how Windows creates, displays, and manipulates documents, media, and the user interface. It is scheduled for release in 2006 and will be available in Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and future releases of the Windows operating system.

Indigo is now known as the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). It has built in support for the WS-* architecture and a unified API for building connected sytems. It extends the functionality of the .NET Framework 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005 and can be used with BizTalk Server for brokered and unbrokered application-to-application communication.
