Updated Finalization and Hosting

My original posts on Finalization and Hosting had some hokey XXXXX markers in place of content, where that content hadn't already been disclosed in some form.  Now that the Visual Studio 2005 Community Preview is available, I've gone back to those two posts and replaced the XXXXX markers with real text.

Also, it's obviously been a while since my last post.  I started writing something this weekend, but the weather here has been spectacular and I was compelled to go outside and play.  I'll try to have something in the next couple of weeks.

    I wonder if it would be possible to get the original text of those posts. I can’t remember where you had used the XXXXX, so I don’t know which parts of those posts I should read again.

    Perhaps you could leave the old posts up… or something?

    Thanks again for all your insightful posts!

  2. Greate post! But I have to learn English more…. :'(

    Chris, can write about StackOverflow exceptions as they relate to reliability. Also I understand there is a difference between handling the case where fault occured in unmanaged vs. managed code.

    StackOverflow is an active discussion topic for us right now. We are half-way through the Whidbey work and are closing a few open issues. I think I’ll wait until everything is resolved.

    On a related note, over the last 2 weeks I’ve written about 30 pages of internal design docs on OutOfMemory and related Reliability topics for Longhorn. But it will be quite some time before I can draw on them for public blogs.

    This is a bit off topic but I was curious if Microsoft was currently developing anything new using COM based technologies? Specificly ATL. And is there going to be a new version of ATL? Thanks
