What a great week, last week!  I met many of you at PDC, discussing InfoCard, Identity Metasystem. I learned plenty from you, understanding the scenarios, your customers' requirements, or discussing how other technologies could use "InfoCard". Thank you!

As I promised at the PDC, we'll make the resource kit available for public this week. This resource kits contains a document and samples, describing step-by-step instructions on how to build "Indigo" (WCF) applications/services that use "InfoCard".  In addition, it also includes Security Token Services (STS) samples that you can customize.  Now, you could build an end-to-end scenario, and play a role of Identity Provider, or Relying Party or both.

As the name indicates, this release only works with WinFX Sept 2005 CTP and VS 2005 Extensions for Sept 2005 CTP. Please install in the followin order:

Since you'll be using pre-release versions, I recommend using a test machine.

Enjoy, and I'm looking forward to hearing your feedback!
