I can now point you at a couple of announcements about the technology I've been working on. Here's the Microsoft Press announcement:
The exciting aspect of this is that we're going to start making the technology available to the community as soon as we can. Here's the site to watch:
I'll post to my blog as soon as some content is available - should be before the end of the week.
We gave a demo of some of the technology during Rick Rashid's keynote at the OOPSLA conference. Unfortunately I expect there'll be some flak about this - watching the keynote, our demo felt a bit like a 'commercial break'. I'll respond to the flak when it arrives.
So not quite the launch I'd hoped for, but that shouldn't detract from the technology itself. Here's a quick heads up on what we've been doing:
Our first release, at the end of this week, will be a preview of the object model editor. Previews of the other components should be available by the end of the year.
