On late Friday afternoon David and I posted a new build of the DinnerNow sample application on CodePlex. The new version (2.5) is compatible for the final release of Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5. David essentially re-wrote the DinnerNow sample so we could best take advantage of new technologies such as LINQ to SQL and simplify the overall application. Some of the 3.5 features used in this release include:
- LINQ to SQL
- WF/WCF integration
- IIS7 & Windows Activation Services (WAS) hosting for WCF services
- WCF 3.5 Syndication Services
- WCF on the .NET Compact Framework 3.5
The DinnerNow 2.5 release has also been tested for compatible with Windows Vista, Windows Vista SP1, and Windows Server 2008 RTM.
