The beta of the .NET Framework version 1.1 SDK and Redistributable is now available, along with the add-on to build and run J# applications. The .NET Framework version 1.1 features improved scalability and performance; support for mobile device development with the ASP.NET Mobile Controls (formerly the Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit); support for Internet Protocol version 6; and classes in ADO.NET for native communication with ODBC and Oracle databases. It also enables the use of code access security to further lock down and isolate ASP.NET applications. For more information, check out the white paper “What’s New in the .NET Framework Version 1.1.“. The Framework is expected to be released simultaneously with Windows .NET Server 2003.
