A query was raised regarding ACLs support on the BCL webpage, by Anders Heick:

"I would love to see ACL manipulation available in your next release. Primarily support for file ACLs but it would also be nice if you supported ACLs on registry keys, AD objects, etc. What are the plans for this feature?"

Anders, and everyone else who's interested in this area, we are looking into the potential for adding ACLs support into the BCL in the next release. While no guarantee at this point, we have had numerous requests for this feature, and are therefore giving it careful consideration. IO ACLs will be our primary focus, although we do hope do be able to provide the support in other areas (such as registry). Keep an eye out for the next Beta to see if the support made it in!
