ASP.NET 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010 Development Overview & Dynamic Data

Last week at the Mix conference in Las Vegas we released a whitepaper that contain a list of many of the items that we are adding to ASP.NET 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010. The paper provides an overview of what we expect to be in the first beta release (do not ask for timeframes as we do not have a published date yet). You can view the whitepaper here in both HTML and download form:


Lasr week we also released a new preview of Dynamic Data. You can download the preview 3 of Dynamic Data from this link: This preview really rocks and contains the QueryBlockExtender mentioned in the whitepaper above it also includes a new DomainDataSouce for accessing business layers that are created from the new .NET RIA Services CTP that was also released at Mix. Check it out and I hope to blog on it soon.


Today I will be speaking at DevConnection in Orlando, FL on Data Access and WebForm improvements in 4.0. If you are at the show the two talks are:


2pm: AMS06: ASP.NET 4.0 Data Access Patterns for Success with Web Forms

3:45: AMS08: ASP.NET Web Forms 4.0


Hope to see you there!

    4.0 will be backwards compatible with 3.5, for the most part you should just be able to start using new features of 4.0 in your existing site.
