Just like that the .Net train continues to move along to the next version of the framework. Microsoft announced on Monday the availability of .Net 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008. Its the third version of .Net that I had the privilege of working on starting from 2.0. I didnt have an opportunity to own any one particular feature in .Net 3.5 as I had moved on to the Silverlight project. My personal favorite features are the Visual Studio F5 experience for WCF services, Uri templates and Syndication API's.
