See you there!
Earlier today Microsoft announced Beta 2 of Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5. As usual, Scott Guthrie has a bunch of reasons why the new stuff is cool. My team has one more reason to add to the list:
We've just updated the 10618 Toolkit release with Beta 2 versions of the AJAX Control Toolkit that work seamlessly with VS 2008 and .NET 3.5!
The Toolkit's new "Framework3.5" downloads contain the latest 10618 Toolkit code in a VS 2008 Beta 2 solution/project. What we've done is make a handful of tweaks to better integrate with the new VS 2008 web designer enhancements for ASP.NET AJAX extenders. As you'd expect, the Toolkit controls work the same as before - but the development experience with VS 2008 is better than ever.
Download Visual Studio 2008 with the .NET Framework 3.5, the .NET 3.5 Beta 2 Toolkit, and find out for yourself!
