To complement our presentations at the last Northeast Roadshow, I wanted to let you know of a few very recent product announcements related to the content we delivered.
- Expression Studio 3 is focused on the developers and designers of rich immersive applications using WPF and Silverlight. The Studio includes Expression Blend with the very cool SketchFlow prototyping and review feature as well as Expression Design, Expression Encoder, and Expression Web.
- Expression Web 3, targets the ASP.NET and PHP developers who are building standards-based websites. It likewise includes Expression Design 3 and Expression Encoder 3, and don’t forget the cool SuperPreview feature allowing you to do side-by-side comparison of the rendering of your website in various browsers.
Windows 7 RTM
[Updated with News Flash: Windows 7 has RTM’d]
Yesterday, Microsoft announced that Windows 7 RTM (Release to Manufacturing) would be available beginning on August 6th to TechNet and MSDN Subscribers. Dates vary a bit for Partners and OEMs as well as for business customers with Software Assurance licenses. And for consumers, we’re still on track for an October 22nd release.
Brandon LeBlanc’s post on the Windows 7 Team Blog, lays out the various availability dates quite nicely, so I’d recommend checking that out to see when you can get your hands on the release.
