Earlier this year, I mentioned my success in using the Remote Desktop client from the Vista beta to enable multiple monitor spanning.
I’ve had a few enquiries about that post, and those people will be glad to see that Microsoft have now publicly released the new version of the RDP client.
Some things that I’ve noticed are missing in IIS7 that comes with Vista.
- WebDAV (as mentioned to me by Ben)
- FrontPage extensions
- The SMTP service
WebDAV is a big problem for our production web server, as we currently promote that as the way for people to edit their content.
Microsoft have released a Firefox Extension (amazing in itself!) to add a Blog This button that launches Windows Live Writer.
I quite like Live Writer, particularly as it understands how to put
<p> tags around paragraphs of text. All it is missing is support for Blogger Beta tags and uploading images. Hopefully these features will be coming soon.
Microsoft have started to publish the feature specifications for Visual Studio and .NET Framework that will be part of the next version.
The trick is to install the “AMD64” version of the Windows Mobile Device Center (even if your CPU is not an AMD)!
Now my iPAQ is synchronising nicely again.
I’m also downloading the Vista RTM at the moment from Microsoft Connect (as a Beta Programme participant).
