Welcome to the XXXIX issue of Community Convergence. The big news this week is that Microsoft has begun releasing source code for the .NET Framework libraries. Shawn Burke explains how to configure Visual Studio so that you can step into the source. The first step is download the hot-fix with the romantic title KB944899. Scott Guthrie informs us that source is available for the following code libraries:

  • Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)
  • Windows Forms
  • The .NET Base Class Libraries (System, System.Collections, System.Drawing, System.IO, System.NET, and more.)
  • ADO.NET and XML
