LINQ to XSD Preview Alpha 0.2 to go with Orcas Beta 1

  • Comments 10

Around Memorial Day we released a new preview release for LINQ to XSD. The download has been picked up meanwhile by blogs and search engines. I am planning to blog about X/O mapping (“Typed XML programming”) and the project somewhat more in depth shortly, but I wanted to quickly complement the download with this info:

·         Here is the download.

·         Requires Orcas Beta 1.

·         Functionality-wise identical with Alpha 0.1.

·         Some new samples related to “Data Contract” and the papers at XML 2006.

You should also check out the very much revised “Revealing the X/O impedance mismatch”. BTW, we added a new subtitle: “Changing lead into gold”.

Getting back to you very soon.
