Microsoft is working not only on the imminent release of .NET Framework 4, but also on expanding support beyond the now-traditional Windows client and server operating system. In this regard, the Redmond giant is hard at work delivering .NET 4 support for its Cloud platform. The promise from the software giant is that customers leveraging Microsoft Azure will be able to start taking advantage of .NET Framework 4 for their applications in mid-2010.

At this point in time, early adopters can still grab the bits for the RC builds of VS 2010 and .NET 4. At the same time, the Release Candidate of Silverlight 4 is also available for download, having been offered in mid-March 2010, at the MIX10 conference in Las Vegas.

“As we announced at MIX 2010, .NET 4 will be available in Windows Azure within 90 days of .NET 4 RTM,” a member of the Windows Azure team stated. Microsoft’s next-generation development tools and platform are scheduled for release the coming week. Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, .NET Framework 4 and Silverlight 4 will all be officially launched on April 12 in a Las Vegas event.

As it was the case with Windows 7, the Redmond company paid close attention to customers, .NET developers and partners with the perfecting of its next-generation development platform and tools and the successor of Silverlight 3. Eddie Amos, general manager, Developer Division, indicated that, with the availability of Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, .NET Framework 4 and Silverlight 4, it was providing devs with the necessary resources to build applications both for existing and emerging platforms.

“In the new versions of Visual Studio .NET, and Silverlight, we’ve packed hundreds of new features and benefits that improve the development lifecycle from design to deployment. With these new tools, developers can get to where they want to be without getting bogged down in the process. They’ll be able to easily create compelling user experiences both on and off the Web,” Amos stated.
