Announcements aplenty at TechEd 2008 in Orlando today. Somasegar’s been writing about his keynote with Bill Gates and Silverlight 2 Beta 2 is shipping this week with a go-live license for production! This means you can legally land apps in production even though it’s beta code – I guess this helps get us round the fact that NBC are using the technology to stream HD content for the Olympics!
Here’s a summary of what they announced:
- Silverlight 2 Beta 2 with go-live license
- Working with Big Blue, closer integration between DB2 and Visual Studio
- CTP of the Microsoft Sync Framework that powers Live Mesh
- CTP of Project "Velocity" – app cache platform for rapid access to disparate data
- Visual Studio extensions for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 v1.2 – making it easier to build upon WSS in Visual Studio
