Now that Beta 2 is out I can talk more freely about what is happening with the .NET Framework. The most visible changes are the installation size, speed, and error rate of the Framework. There are also a lot of great new features
So since middle of June I have been working on the .NET CLR team. I am responsible for deployment of the .NET Framework. And boy is there some work to do. First things first though just how do you deploy applications written in .NET. It turns out that is a very complex topic.
One of the parts of my job will be helping define the message around deploying .NET Applications. One of the feedbacks that I heard loud and clear is finding the .NET Framework is challenging. So here you go a single quick url for downloading the .NET Framework - http://www.microsoft.com/net.
