Today, we have posted the Beta bits for the NETMF version 4.2 release to CodePlex.
There are some great additional features beyond what we announced for the 4.2 Alpha release (cryptographic primitives, PWM, FTP,…). These include:
I am always being asked for examples of what NETMF is used for. I am also frequently surprised by what people are doing with it. Since going Open Source, there is not an obvious way for me to find out what people are doing with the product and the result is that my list of applications is getting a little stale
Just got back form TechEd 2011 where Microsoft’s smallest platform had the biggest booth (no kidding). We also had a lot of help manning the booth – thanks to all the volunteers there. The word got out that we had some cool demos as well. Here is what we were showing.
Over the last 7 months, we have shown the .NET Gadgeteer to a number of internal and external parties. The response is almost always the same – where can I get one?
In case you haven’t been out to the GHI site in the last few days, they just announced a new set of kits. These kits are intended to give you an easy on-ramp to building things.
It has been a busy month getting ready for MIX 2011 in Las Vegas last week. We put together a cool challenge for some of the attendees – a challenge that was maybe a little too challenging but still fun.
I’m a bit tardy on this announcement since the release has been available for almost 10 days now but things are pretty busy here. On March 15th, we posted an alpha version of the 4.2 release. The features that are available in this early look are security improvements, FTP Support, a PWM Object, and a number of fixes to the issues that you have reported in the issue tracker on the CodePlex project.
