NETFX3.COM - The .NET Framework third generation (formerly called WinFX) + IIS 7

Formerly called WinFX, the official name of the piece of software art is now called .NET Framework 3.0. The technology is based on .NET Framework 2.0 and bundles the following next-generation internet-enabling technologies that are considered key pillars of the Vista wave (but will be available for XP and W2K3 as well):

  • Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) - formerly called Indigo
  • Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) - formerly called Avalon
  • Windows Workflow Foundation (WF)
  • Windows CardSpace (WCS) - formerly called InfoCards

Quite a bunch of .NET heroes are blogging about this, including 'Soma' and Jason Zander. Notice LINQ stuff goes in the Orcas timeframe, which is coming after Vista.

More information on the brand new site www.netfx3.com. And now I'm in the mood of giving away links to interesting sites, take a look at www.iisseven.com as well for information on the next-generation webserver technology: IIS 7.
