I thought it might be nice to give everyone a little peak into what we are doing for V2 from the development side.  With the release of Whidbey Beta 2 we are working hard on getting something out. 

The main thing we are focusing is giving a strong foundation that shows the direction of V2 for RTM.  We don’t expect to have everything converted, but enough to show you the general direction.

Here is the list of things that we are focusing on for our first community drop:

  • Logging:
  • Data
  • Configuration
  • Instrumentation

I will try to keep this list updated as start making decisions around the areas. Some of the things we have already done are the following:

  • Move Unit Tests:  Now you can have two compiles… debug and release.   No more trying to figure out what you need to do.  Of course, this does mean we will have to make some methods / classes public / protected for testing.
  • Removed the SR.strings files to use the new Resource generated code from Whidbey
  • Put everything into solution folders since we now have double the projects.
