I recently got a review of the CLR panels at the PDC – these are going to rock…
Designing the CLR – Grill the folks that designed the CLR, understand our future direction and pitch your favorite feature! Panelist include:
Patrick Dussud, Jim Miller, Anders Hejlsberg, and me!
Put The Power Inside: Hosting the CLR in Your Application – Find out how we hosted the CLR in Yukon and how you can host the CLR in your own applications. Your favorite CLR blogger, Chris Brumme will be on this panel.
I was asking what CLR content will be at the PDC, looks like its really gonna rock. The Yukon details will be interesting to hear, hopefully someone will blog this !!
Miguel points to an interesting announcement that Open Office will have a language binding for C# and VB.NET. Not sure on all the details yet and if it will run in Linux (and indeed if its using Mono for that)?
Jason Zander who is a product unit manager of the CLR joins the blogging ranks and starts out with a great post on NGen.
Here is an interesting qoute from Anders Hejlsberg,
"Most of the credit for generics [in C# 2.0] goes to Don Syme and Andrew Kennedy from Microsoft Research." so if you want to start seeing how this is done under the hood, check out Gyro
Some time ago Miguel once said that Parrot was based on religon (ok he said ideology), You can reads Dans view on this here. Dot GNU's Rhys Weatherly is however courting the Parrot developers to to get C# running on Parrot, it will be interesting to see if the relationship can grow and if C# really can be crafted (and run well) on multiple CLR's, would be great to see Miguel get Mono involved too.
So much going on at the PDC with reguards to v2.0 of the .NET Framework but not a lot on whats new in the CLR for v2.0. Maybe the Phoneix stuff will be added on later?
Christian notes that Phoneix is too late for v2.0 and in his comments Don notes that maybe it will show up in Orcas (the next version after 2.0, be it 2.1 or 3.0). Christian also notes that Generics will appear in v2.0, anyone interested in seeing how its done at the CLR level should see the Gyro addition for Rotor.
Robert has found this great Rotor wiki
, a lot of the links are of of date though. Of interest is the JIT stuff so using the links as referance I found this PPT on FJIT
According to mr box,
and I thought it was Longhorns UI ;-) Does that mean when I use the OS that all my code will be written before I sit down to write it? :)
notes an InternetWeek article that compares Flash to .NET and J2EE, my comments are in the post.
