Musings about ASP.NET and more...by G. Andrew Duthie
Great summary! :-)
Damn, ScottGu stole my comment. But I clicked here so I am going to say the same thing :) Great Summary.
Succinct reporting... thanks...:-)
Any intellisense improvements like C# enumerations (ala the way VB does it)
or switch/select statements against a enum will build out the entire statement?
I'm going to fall over and die if I have to wait tell spring for all of this. Just keep putting more "cookies" in the "cookie jar" that I can't quite reach.
What I'm reporting here are not just announcements...this talk in particular demonstrated all of the features that I reported, in working code. Some of the features may not be in the build of Whidbey that was given out to attendees, but they all will be in the beta in the spring, and I've seen them in action, both in this session, and up close.
So no vaporware here...it's all working code. :-)
There's probably nothing I could say to convince you, but the likelihood at this point of these *working* features being pulled from the product is slim. Once the beta has been released, it will be even slimmer. That doesn't mean it's a guarantee, but the builds that the ASP.NET team is showing off are not some forked-off "demo" code. They are what the product is going to be. Sorry if you're skeptical about that, but I guess we can just wait to see whether your skepticism is justified.

I assure you Scott, that none of the stuff talked about here was 'demoware.' We did not bake the bits to make it look good. I recognize what your talking about and I'm not going to say that we never do that, but for my talk -- we went in, grabbed a build out of the tree -- made no special tweaks and demo'd all this really great stuff. Just hang tight until we release the beta -- I know you will be pleasantly surprised.
