.NET Framework 1.2?

For some reason I had it in my head that the next version of the .NET Framework would be 2.0. I'm not sure why - maybe the stream of references to Whidbey/2.0 in various blogs. But recently I've seen mention of .NET 1.2 pop up in a couple of 'softies' blogs - but no where else. Anyone know what gives?

I am not a MS guy, but I am aware of this framework version. My understanding is that it has been used with Whidbey and Yukon internal builds. I was also under the impression that by the time Whidbey and Yukon are released, that the Framework version would be a 2.0 version. I have no confirmation of that however.

As you know, Whdibey is still under active developement. Current builds are stamped with the 1.2 verision number, but we have NOT made the final call on that the version number will be. My personal bet is that it will be a 2.0.... but we will see.

The .Net framework version 1.2 is also referred to as 2.0.
