Build .NET 1.1 applications with Visual Stuido 2005

Microsoft, Programming, Visual Studio No Comments

Another intersting tool for .NET developers is this power toy for Visual Studio 2005 called MSBee. MSBee enables developers to build .NET 1.1 applications with Visual Studio 2005.

Should be a great tool for those of us who still have alot of .NET 1.1 code to support, but enjoy the enhancements in Visual Studio 2005.

WPF/E

Microsoft, Programming, Tech No Comments

Last week at the Mix ’06 Conference, Microsoft announced WPF/E, or Windows Presentation Foundation/Everywhere.

From Mike Harsh’s Blog:

“So
what is WPF/E? It is a cross-platform, cross-browser web technology
that supports a subset of WPF XAML. WPF/E also has a friction-free
install model and the download size we’re targeting is very small. WPF/E supports programmability through javascript for tight browser
integration. The WPF/E package also contains a small, cross platform
subset of the CLR and .NET Framework that can run C# or VB.NET code. Yes, we are bringing C# programming to the Mac.”

I am absolutely thrilled by this news.
I can’t wait to write cross platform, firefox compatible rich applications in .NET!
