Comments from the Editor
==========================================================

This week I'm at DevConnections along with about 4699 other people. While the keynote was a bit on the dull side, there was a bit of interesting information being presented. One =announcement that occurred before the keynote was the release of Microsoft Office System 2007 to manufacturing. This RTM means the product is complete and will soon be on its way.

Other information that was announced at this show includes:

- Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 Released to Manufacturing. This Framework will also be an included part of Vista.

- Visual Studio 2005 extensions for .NET Framework 3.0 (WCF & WPF), November 2006 CTP available.

- Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office for the 2007 Microsoft Office System released to manufacturing. (Now that is a long product name)

- ASP.NET AJAX Extensions and Microsoft Asynchronous Javascript and XML Library ("Atlas") released as a fully supported Beta 2.

- Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition release candidate released. Also stated by Microsoft was:

- The availability to MSDN. Premium subscribers of the 2007 Microsoft Office system and Windows Vista upon their release to manufacture

These were the key announcements. Over then next day or two, I'm sure you'll read more on each of these. Over the next day or two I'll post additional information on these in the announcements section of Codeguru.

Until then...

Brad!
