WinFX Beta 1 SDK Available

  • Comments 2
In my ongoing effort to link to every SDK in the world, here's the WinFX Beta 1 SDK for your coding pleasure.
Microsoft® WinFX ™ Software Development Kit for Microsoft® Pre-Release Windows Operating System Code-Named "Longhorn", Beta 1 Web Setup
The WinFX SDK contains documentation, samples and tools designed to help you develop managed applications and libraries using WinFX, which is the set of next-generation managed APIs provided by Microsoft. This release includes documentation about using the .NET Framework 2.0, the Windows Presentation Foundation (formerly code named Avalon), and the Windows Communications Foundation (formerly code named Indigo).
Here is a direct link to the ISO, if you prefer to install from a disc. (Thanks to Norm Diamond for pointing out that I was linking to an earier version.)

    Thank you very much. Even the MSDN online concierge couldn't find that when I asked.
  • I think the following is a newer ISO. Release Candidates (which don't exist yet for this product) are newer than Betas, but Betas are newer than Beta Release Candidates, right? Unresolved questions include Release Candidate Betas, Release Candidate Release Candidates, and Beta Betas. Fortunately current 64-bit machines are ia64 and AMD64 and stuff like that instead of a certain famous piece of history, because otherwise we'd have Alpha Beta Release Candidates.

    Anyway:
