Project Astoria December CTP is out!


We just released the December 2007 CTP of Project Astoria, or I guess I should say the ADO.NET Data Services framework as Mike pointed out.


This is an important milestone for Astoria, as this is the first release that is based on the real, production code base and not on the initial prototype that we built to explore the space. Formats, APIs, URLs and other interface elements have been extensively revisited so I would recommend that you switch to the new CTP for any future work.


This CTP is compatible with the RTM version of Visual Studio 2008, so you can finally move off intermediate builds of it when working with Astoria.


We’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this new CTP!

    Is astoria going to be limited to 260 byte url’s? Can IIS be configured to take URL’s that are longer?  I get HTTP 400 errors on the 261’s byte.

  4. Pablo,

    ADO.NET Data Services is truly amazing.  Great work!

    My only hope is that you reconsider not providing a total record count for paging scenarios and that you would please not make all of the classes behind Data Services internal / sealed.
