As many of you may already know, the release of Visual Studio .NET 2005 is right around the corner… hooray! As we put the final touches on “Whidbey” for the November 7th launch we are starting a parallel effort focused on planning for our next major release of Visual Studio, codenamed “Orcas”.
As we switch hats from ”Whidbey” release to “Orcas” planning, the System.Net team would like to hear directly from networking application developers on what they would like to see from System.Net in the future.
Some questions that we have been asking ourselves that you may also want to consider …
Beyond the features and functionality of the classes, we also would like to learn about network applications, past, present and future that are being built by .NET developers! So please let us know about the applications that you have created or are in the process of creating by replying to this post in the .NET Framework and Communication forum, as a comment to this post on our WNDP team blog, or simply by sending the System.NET team an email.
The System.Net classes are about enabling developers to write robust, secure networking applications for the client and the server. And as we begin planning for the future of the networking classes we want to be sure that we hear about what you would like to see. We look forward to hearing from you.
