.NET Framework 3.5 in February
Normally I get flooded with messages about stuff like the official release-date for .NET Framework 3.5. But since my Omea Reader database crashed (for the third time, but this time I can't find a solution to get it working again) and I still haven't added a lot of blogs again, the only resource I've come across that said it was Daniel Moth's weblog.
Anyway, Daniel Moth just said .NET Framework 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 will be officially released in February next year, but we should be able to get a hold on both before the end of this year. I've been wondering about this, since November has been the month for Microsoft to release this kind of stuff. But since the RC1 hasn't been (publicly) released yet, I was wondering if they'd skip it. I still am, but they're probably going to release RTM right after Beta 2.
He's got a list of 10 things you should know about Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5. There's quite good stuff in there with links to more resources. I like that about The Moth, especially because links are often to his own weblog, sharing valuable information.
The only thing I don't completely agree upon is point 3. My mobile application was build using multi-targeting in VS2008 but the setup was created in Visual Studio 2005. You can't create setup projects that are based on the .NET Framework 2.0! :-)
