Last week I mentioned that although currently assemblies in the GAC receive FullTrust as a side effect of the GAC being on the local machine, from Whidbey beta 2 and beyond, being in the GAC will imply FullTrust on its own. A lot of the feedback wondered why we were doing this. Here's some of the reasoning:
All that being said, one of the reasons we did this in a public beta is so that we can gather feedback, and asses the impact that the change will have on real world applications. I'd love to get some comments from people who are currently locking down assemblies in the GAC. Specifically I'm interested in what scenarios you're trying to solve with this problem, and some other ways you tried to go about fixing the problem.
