ADO.NET Data Services v1.5 CTP1

Brief Description

This CTP is an early preview of the v1.5 features for ADO.NET Data Services. This CTP targets the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and extends the functionality we provided in v1.0 of ADO.NET Data Services by providing additional features.

Overview

This CTP is a preview of the set of features we are considering shipping with the next version of ADO.NET Data Services. This CTP targets the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and extends the functionality we provided in v1.0 of ADO.NET Data Services by providing additional features. The features in this CTP may not be included in the .NET Framework 4 or Silverlight 3 when they ship.
As this is a CTP release, we recommend that you do not install this release on your primary development computer. Also, be aware that the features that ultimately ship with the final release of v1.5 may be different than the features included in this CTP.
The features included in this CTP are:
- Row count
- Feed customization (aka "web-friendly feeds")
- Data binding for WPF and Silverlight 2
- Enhanced blob support
- Server-driven paging
- A new "Data Service Provider" interface for custom providers
- Various bug fixes to V1.0 features
Install Notes:
This release is separate from the Project Codename "Astoria Offline", Alpha Preview released on March 5, 2009. Installing this CTP on the same system as the Offline release will cause a conflict and is not supported. We strongly recommend that you do not install them together.
It is possible to use this CTP with the Windows 7 Beta; however, design time support integrated with Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 SP1 or Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition will not be available on Windows 7 Beta. Using DataSvcUtil.exe for client-side code generation will also not be available on Windows 7 Beta. You will receive a warning if you use the setup on a system with Windows 7 Beta installed indicating a file is locked but the setup will not fail.

ASP.NET MVC 1.0

Brief Description

ASP.NET MVC 1.0 provides a new Model-View-Controller (MVC) framework on top of the existing ASP.NET 3.5 runtime.

Overview

ASP.NET MVC 1.0 provides a new Model-View-Controller (MVC) framework on top of the existing ASP.NET 3.5 runtime. This means that developers can take advantage of the MVC design patterns to create their Web Applications which includes the ability to achieve and maintain a clear separation of concerns (the UI or view from the business and application logic and backend data), as well as facilitate test driven development (TDD). The ASP.NET MVC framework defines a specific pattern to the Web Application folder structure and provides a controller base-class to handle and process requests for “actions”. Developers can take advantage of the specific Visual Studio 2008 MVC templates within this release to create their Web applications, which includes the ability to select a specific Unit Test structure to accompany their Web Application development.
The MVC framework is fully extensible at all points, allowing developers to create sophisticated structures that meet their needs, including for example Dependency Injection (DI) techniques, new view rendering engines or specialized controllers.
As the ASP.NET MVC framework is built on ASP.NET 3.5, developers can take advantage of many existing ASP.NET 3.5 features, such as localization, authorization, Profile etc.n

Microsoft Code Analysis Tool .NET (CAT.NET) v1 CTP - 32 bit

Brief Description

CAT.NET is a binary code analysis tool that helps identify common variants of certain prevailing vulnerabilities that can give rise to common attack vectors such as Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), SQL Injection and XPath Injection.

Overview

CAT.NET is a snap-in to the Visual Studio IDE that helps you identify security flaws within a managed code (C#, Visual Basic .NET, J#) application you are developing. It does so by scanning the binary and/or assembly of the application, and tracing the data flow among its statements, methods, and assemblies. This includes indirect data types such as property assignments and instance tainting operations. The engine works by reading the target assembly and all reference assemblies used in the application -- module-by-module -- and then analyzing all of the methods contained within each. It finally displays the issues its finds in a list that you can use to jump directly to the places in your application's source code where those issues were found. The following rules are currently support by this version of the tool. - Cross Site Scripting - SQL Injection - Process Command Injection - File Canonicalization - Exception Information - LDAP Injection - XPATH Injection - Redirection to User Controlled Site

Windows Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility View List

Brief Description

This download consists of a list of sites that are most likely to be displayed better in Compatibility View in Windows Internet Explorer 8.

Overview

Windows Internet Explorer 8 is Microsoft’s latest web browser. Unlike previous versions, Internet Explorer 8 renders content in the most standards-compliant way possible. This means that web pages will be displayed in Internet Explorer 8’s standards mode by default. Through product feedback channels, our users have indicated that, during the beta period, some websites may not have been compatible with Internet Explorer 8 in its default, standards-based mode. As a result, these domains have been added to a list of sites that, for the short-term, are most likely to be displayed better in Compatibility View. All Internet Explorer 8 users are given the choice to use this list, and the subset that chooses to do so will see each listed domain automatically displayed in Compatibility View, without additional user interaction or notice. The sites on this list have high traffic volume (in their regions), and having a compatible website ensures a significant number of Internet Explorer 8 users will have a great experience. This list will be periodically updated and automatically downloaded to Internet Explorer 8 users who have opted-in to use Compatibility View updates from Microsoft. For more information on Compatibility View list updates, please see - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/960321.

Microsoft MultiPoint Software Development Kit (SDK)

Brief Description

Microsoft MultiPoint Software Development Kit (SDK) is a development framework that allows developers to build applications that enable up to 250 individual mouse devices to work simultaneously on one computer.

Overview

The Microsoft® MultiPoint™ SDK version 1.1 is a development framework that allows developers to build applications that enable up to 250 individual mouse devices to work simultaneously on one computer. As a developer, you can use the MultiPoint SDK to create educational applications that take advantage of collaborative learning methodologies. In schools with minimum infrastructure, MultiPoint greatly enhances the shared computing experience. Initial pilot programs conducted in India by Microsoft Research show that for certain subjects, MultiPoint can enhance learning when compared to a 1:1 computing scenario.
MultiPoint should not be confused with applications that allow multiple people to control multiple mouse devices to perform standard operations. In those cases, the system traditionally cannot identify which mouse has made which changes, and there is normally no option for controlling the permissions of the various devices. MultiPoint is a development framework that enables developers to build applications to take advantage of multiple mouse devices, including the ability to handle mouse clicks from different users independently and to assign different permissions to each mouse. For example, the mouse belonging to a teacher in a learning application might need additional permissions to control the activity).

Overview of Service-Oriented Architecture Programming Model and Runtime System for Windows HPC Server 2008

Brief Description

Developers, users, and administrators face increasing challenges in meeting time-to-result goals. Applications must be developed quickly, run efficiently on the cluster, and be effectively managed so that performance, reliability, and resource utilization are optimized. Learn how Windows HPC Server 2008 can help meet these challenges.

Overview

Windows HPC Server 2008 provides a platform for Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)-based applications. The SOA programming model allows solution developers and architects to rapidly develop new high performance computing cluster-enabled interactive applications and easily modify existing distributed computing applications. With Windows HPC Server 2008, the developer build/debug/deploy experience is streamlined, the speed of processing is accelerated, and the management of the applications and systems is simplified.
This white paper provides a technical overview of SOA applications and the Windows HPC Server 2008 functions that support the SOA model; including building and deploying SOA applications; their architecture, runtime system, scaling, and performance considerations; and monitoring and troubleshooting.

Live Framework Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio April 2009 CTP

Brief Description

The Live Framework Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio, in conjunction with the Live Framework SDK, extend Visual Studio 2008 to simplify the end-to-end development experience of creating Mesh-enabled Web Applications by making it trivial to create, build, run, debug and package these applications for the Live Desktop.

Overview

The Live Framework Tools significantly decrease the time it takes to develop Mesh-enabled Web Applications in Visual Studio 2008.
The Live Framework Tools include:

  • Project templates for creating DHTML Mesh-enabled Web Applications and C# or VB Silverlight Mesh-enabled Web Applications
  • Building and packaging of Mesh-enabled Web Applications for deployment
  • Launching and debugging Mesh-enabled Web Applications hosted in the Live Desktop
  • IntelliSense completion for Live Framework assemblies and JavaScript files

The Live Framework Tools April CTP release includes several updates:

  • Installation of the Silverlight Tools, Live Framework SDK, and Live Framework Tools is accessed through a single installer.
  • Error messages and diagnostics have been improved. In most error situations when the server returns a failure code more information can be located in the application event log
  • A set of C# Code Snippets for accessing common Live Framework tasks are now accessible through the standard snippet mechanism. To see the available snippets right-click in a .cs file and select “insert snippet.”

This release also contains the cumulative updates from the January CTP:

  • Debugging or running a Mesh-enabled Web Application which contains no changes from previous versions immediately launches the application instead of re-uploading the files.
  • Mesh-enabled Web Applications created by the Live Framework Tools now have identical offers to those created through the Azure Services Developer Portal, which are generally less restrictive. This change removes the need for the workaround mentioned in this thread.
  • Projects created by the Live Framework Tools may now contain periods fixing the issue reported in this bug.
  • Changes to the application's logo.png file will now be reflected in the icon that appears on the Live Desktop fixing the issue reported in this thread.

TheEnterpriseSpreadsheetPushingTowardTransparency

Overview

The over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market is a microcosm of what is and will be happening in financial services. It is a market that uniquely reflects the needs of clients, the concerns of regulators, the opportunity among banks, and the role of technology. The problems and solutions for OTC derivatives have broad applications to other parts of the financial services industry. One of the services with which a derivatives, or structured product, desk provides clients is the ability to quickly structure, price and execute an agreement that replicates the returns of an underlying index or basket of securities with customized terms and conditions. Besides highly standardized products like total-return swaps and barrier options, the spreadsheet is a key tool in creating, pricing and analyzing these products. In today’s risk-averse environment, however, the derivatives desk must balance the creativity and speed that clients demand with the pressure that banks are under to better manage their exposure to various forms of risk. These trends are driving a redesign of the way spreadsheets are deployed, run and managed across the financial-services industry, from global commercial banks to Greenwich-based hedge funds.
