• WinFX and ActiveSync updates

    “Windows Presentation Foundation” (Avalon), “Windows Communication Foundation” (Indigo), and “Windows Workflow Foundation” will be part of Windows Vista and also available for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003

  • Work With Relative Paths

    I was reviewing some ASP.NET 1.1 code last night using Visual Studio 2005, making use of the Code Analysis (fxCop) tools that are built in.

    I noticed some of the .aspx pages had hyperlinks with a leading tilde (~), which I’d never noticed before.

    Turns out, this make the link relative to the application root, which is something that I suspect I could have made use of before now.

    While not documented for 1.1, it is in the ASP.NET 2.0 documentation now, as well as referenced in quite a few articles on the web.

  • Ready Launch

    Microsoft have opened registration for the full-day Launch events for Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005

    I’ll be going to the Sydney event, so it will be interesting to see how that compares to the Adelaide ones i normally attend.

    Note, these are different to the community launches that are also happening around the place.
