Default asp.net ajax tookit, included in Asp.net 3.5

I am confused by something said on the ASP.Net AjAX toolkit home page... It states that the toolkit is included in ASP.NET 3.5, but that's not what I found, and I ended up downloading the toolkit myself (and then added those controls to vs 2008).

Is this because that I am using the express version, but it is included in the professional version? or whatever on the web page is simply a mis-statement (or misleading)...

AFAIK, it doesn't say the toolkit is included, it says the "framework" is included:

>> ASP.NET AJAX is built-into ASP.NET 3.5.

http://www.asp.net/ajax/

So, you have the ASP.NET Ajax Framework available in 3.5 which gives you access to the client framework, UpdatePanel, ScriptManager and so on.

The Toolkit on the other hand is a separate download that gives you access to a whole bunch of other (AJAX enabled) controls...

Cheers.
