... Deva blogs!!
I changed the way of blogging. Re-designed the site & started using the latest Windows Live Writer 2011!! Additionally added Microsoft Translator gadget available @ top of page, so that you can change the page in your preferred language!!
Now @ MIX 11, MS demonstrated the value of developing for HTML5 and the standards-based Web with Internet Explorer 9 on PCs running Windows and Internet Explorer 9 on Windows Phone. With the forthcoming release of Windows Phone, coming later this year, MS is providing developers with more hardware capabilities, better browsing and improved tooling, as well as expanded opportunities and Windows Phone Marketplace options. Together, these technologies create a richer application environment that expands mobile usage scenarios.
Qantas for Windows Phone allows users to manage travel plans including checking in and reviewing the status of an upcoming flight. Coming soon to Windows Phone Marketplace.
The new application platform enables developers to take advantage of the following:
• Application multitasking for background processing, audio and file transfer, and fast application switching
• Deeper phone integration so apps can, for example, take better advantage of the versatility of Live Tiles (refer the above pic)
• Access to the camera and Motion Sensor library so developers can build apps that incorporate device hardware and build augmented reality experiences
Apart from this, MS provided the first deep look at the development platform for the next version of Windows Phone, arriving on new and existing handsets later this year. Developers will soon have updated Windows Phone Developer Tools. Improved tools include a performance profiler and sensor simulation, enabling developers to build more integrated and high-performing applications. Using this, the developers (we) will be able to take advantage of these new capabilities to create even more creative and engaging Windows Phone apps and games.
Way to go!!

You can find the Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP1 RTM Protocol technical documentation set provides detailed technical specifications for Microsoft protocols and extensions to industry-standards or other published protocols that are implemented and used in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP1 RTM. This allows the user to interoperate or communicate natively with Microsoft Office client and other server products. You can download the documentation, which is designed to describe each protocol in detail as it is used by the Microsoft Exchange Server. Each protocol specification documents the technical requirements, limitations, dependencies, and Microsoft-specific protocol behavior. The documentation set includes a set of companion overview and reference documents that supplement the technical specifications with conceptual background, overviews of inter-protocol relationships and interactions, and technical reference information
Note: The protocol specifications are available in the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) for that you can use the Adobe Reader 8.0 or later @ http://www.adobe.com.
