First of all Happy New Year!
I have been "in a cave for almost a month"... half of which I spent relaxing diving catching cray's... the other half I spend learning and networking in rainy Seattle.
I have so much to share and talk about but I need to be careful not overload and throw everything out at once... so here goes my first post of the year.
Ari Bixhorn has let the cat out of the bag that we are supporting "Go Live" licenses for the Windows Workflow Foundation Beta2 Runtime (WF) and Windows Communication Foundation Beta2 Runtime (WCF)... it is important to be clear these are isolated releases of these two foundation frameworks outside of the WinFX runtime components.... there is no "Go Live" license for the WinFX January Community Technology Preview (CTP).
Download the WF & WCF B2 runtimes from here.
Please Read: Important Factors to Consider Before Going LiveThere are several important factors that you should take into consideration before deploying applications based on the pre-release technologies in a live operating environment: These are pre-release technologies and they may not operate correctly.
At this stage I'm not sure what this means for running on the Dec CTP of Vista... but I'll strive to find out.
Yup this stuff will work with the Dec CTP of Vista... the Vista “where to get the beta” site will also points to the WinFX Runtime January CTP.
