It's here, the long wait is over. We've just made a drop of the Commerce Server 2006 Starter Site (beta) at the
Microsoft Connect site. We've got most of the
core functionality in there, including ASP.NET master pages and web controls for functions such
as drag-and-drop product detail and shopping cart. Profiles and authorization are hooked up as well. Great stuff. Please
remember that we haven't applying much UI formatting at this point, so it'll be up to you to skin it how you like. Of course, the UI
shouldn't matter because this beta version of the Starter Site can NOT be put in production. It should be used as a programming reference.
Not signed up for the Commerce Server 2006 beta? For shame! Check out the
Commerce Server 2006 Beta registration page.
