It’s official — a community technology preview of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0 are available for download!
Also, if you haven’t heard, Parallel Extensions have been rolled into .NET 4.0. This is fantastic news. I guess they’re not Parallel Extensions anymore.
How about that fancy new .NET logo? Very slick.
I saw the announcement on Bart’s page pointing to the official announcement by Somasger, but the page is taking forever to load. I’m sure that blogs.msdn.com is getting positively hammered this week with PDC going on in LA.
Also of note is the announcement of the Windows Azure Service Platform which will allow cloud computing to be hosted in Microsoft datacenters and communicate with RESTful endpoints. Here’s another Channel9 video.
Speaking of REST, Steve Maine has announced the availability of the WCF REST starter kit. I just added it to my long list of cool stuff coming out of PDC that I’ll be downloading and trying out here soon.
