ROTOR (SSCLI) 2.0 Ships!

I'm happy to announce today that ROTOR 2.0 has released to the web.  You can download the release here:

ROTOR contains most of the CLR and base class libraries found in our commerical product.  It is released under the shared source program.  There are several new things in this release:

  • Generics implementation

  • Lightweight Code Generation (LCG)

  • Stub-based dispatch support

  • New reflection and reflection emit

  • New C# features like Anonymous Methods, Anonymous Delegates and Generics

    It’s great to see the interest in the release!  With this version of ROTOR, we wanted to get something out as fast as we could after Whidbey (V2.0) that had the widest developer base.  For this reason we chose to concentrate on x86 on Windows (note we did keep the PAL up and running as part of the release).  At this time I don’t have anything further to announce on future releases.  I’m looking forward to the feedback from the community on the release, as well as the contribution of the community to ongoing improvements.
