Today, we announced the broad customer availability of the Community Content feature for the Visual Studio 2005 documentation and the .NET 3.0 Class Library on MSDN Online.

 

The Community Content feature allows our community of developers worldwide to extend the official online documentation by adding tips, notes, code examples, and other information alongside the over 300,000 topics covered by this RC0. Because the community content is placed in a WIKI environment, developers can edit existing content blocks and add new ones.

 

Here are the key links:

Only some of the topics in the MSDN Library are currently enabled for Community Content - they will be tagged as such with a "Community Content" icon.  Many other Microsoft developer content sets will add the feature over the next few weeks and months. 

 

Although this release only covers English content, localized versions in French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Traditional Chinese are scheduled for broad customer availability in February 2007.

Namaste!
