Docking controls in WPF

I have recently used the Dockpanel Suite, developed by Weifen Luo, for managing the main window of the radiation commissioning software I have developed. The Dockpanel Suite is aimed for Windows Forms. There is a more recent Windows Presentation Foundation alternative WPF Docking also developed by Weifen Luo, albeit not open source.
Fortunately, there seems to be an open-source alternative: AvalonDock, which is available at Microsoft's Codeplex site.
I will further investigate if AvalonDock is a sufficient replacement for the Dockpanel Suite when moving into the WPF world.
