New MSDN Reader

Following the NYTimes Reader, Microsoft recently launched the new MSDN Reader, this tool provides a very cool way of reading all MSDN articles in a WPF-powered reader.

The interface is really sleek and vector-based fonts really improve readability. Perhaps the most interesting feature of any WPF-reader is how the content adjusts itself on window resize. Zooming in and out of the text and images is super-cool, the images are loaded almost instantly and so is the search that shows results really fast.

From developers point-of-view, the reader caches the content offline (no surprises there), the project is still in beta and there are some known issues.

Full source code as well as the executables can be downloaded from the new MSDN Code Gallery page here
