The same bits released with Orcas Beta 1.0 are now available as a standalone package. The documentation update is out too, although few days ago (our technical writers rocks!)

Quick Notes:

  • I ran into an error when I tried to install it on top of existing CTP. If you happen to have the CTP bits installed in your machine, try to uninstall it first before installing the beta.
  • You will get compilation errors if you tried any of my demos with the new bits; the errors are more around clean up and name changes. The two errors you will most likely hit are:
    1- The namespace Microsoft.Sync.xxx does not exist -  Remove the using statement altogether.
    2- SyncProgressEventArgs.Stage property does not exist – Rename it to SyncStage instead.

I will try to update the demos in the following few days. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.

 

Update: Just to let you know, I left Microsoft to start a new company, Raveable Hotel Reviews.
