aspThe Microsoft development team doesn't really seem to get a vacation, do they? After having just released Visual Studio 2008 which includes the .NET Framework 3.5, they're continuing to work on a ton of new things that are going to hit us soon.
- ASP.NET 3.5 is part of the release and has a number of cool new things
- My last post talked about the Silverlight 1.1 tools for VS08 being released
- Silverlight 1.1 has now been renamed to Silverlight 2.0 due to the large number of features being added into it, including better and fuller support for WPF entities
- The ASP.NET "Futures" stack has now been renamed to ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions and a preview release of this is expected soon in December. This will include the MVC Framework, Dynamic Data, REST and AJAX services
To paraphrase a Klingon saying, "It is a good year to develop".
