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.
.NET Framework 1.1 Beta Available to Beta Testers

Beta testers started receiving the beta 1 few weeks ago
Like anyone cares.
I do too.
What about it? This news story is about Microsoft .NET. When we get news about MONO, we usually post them too.
any info’s on what all is new?
im enjoying my current version greatly and unless theres some major gootta-have change i think ill wait for the release
(j# isnt compelling for me… although i will probably give it a try when i do update)
The link directs me to a BetaPlace login screen, which has a “Passport users click here to log in” link; followed the link, logged-in, and was returned to the “click here to log in” page – then every time I follow that link I just go back to the same page. (Mozilla/Linux)<P>
That’s what’s so great about .NET – I can’t even *log in* to the thing!
Why would you want to download Windows technology via Linux anyway?
The latest version of NQL (Network Query Language, version 3.0) is fully integrated with the .NET Framework. This tool is f*cking amazing (but it is also expensive). Check it out here:
Some relatively similar products to NQL that you may have heard of before are The VXM System ( http://www.vxm.com ) and Rebol ( http://www.rebol.com ), which are also very cool…think of distributed network operating systems (i.e. advanced programmable grid computing). I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of NQL 3.0 and combine it with C# and .NET (drool)…

Maybe he wants to put it on his Samba server so he can distribute it to his Windows client machines from there. Or not

After that, gird yourself for the likes of this:
Oh yeah, that looks like it’ll be manageable in a few versions. Bask in the glory of phrases such as “After the project is opened in Visual Studio version 1.0, you cannotopen it in Visual Studio .NET version 1.0.”. Typo, I hope.
No .NET bashing, or Java bashing, or a flamebait that could start a flamewar….. is this OSNews.com?
We’re all cowering, waiting for news of whether or not we will be headed into the next great depression due to the enormous costs of maintaining a global police state.
The United States will maintain the clear military dominance it has held since the end of the Cold War, the report says. “Our forces will be strong enough to dissuade potential adversaries from pursuing a military buildup in hopes of surpassing, or equaling, the power of the United States,” it says.
Why do you think there is a bleakness that hangs over the tech industry? A huge buildup of the military doesn’t do anything good for the tech industry. Bombs are not jobs. And all the focus on security kills innovation that actually makes things work better for business or for individual lives.

Whats that got to do with .NET?
Anyway, 1.1 has finally IPv6 support. That’s good for me.
With .NET and Palladium running on LaGrande hardware, Microsoft will have created a completely closed ecosystem.
As a developer, you will not be able to write code that does anything that Microsoft doesn’t want you to.
As a user, you will have every action of yours — down to the API calls in the apps you run — monitored and subject to approval processes that you are blind to. You will have software from Microsoft and the government running on your machine and will be able to do nothing about it.
The PC has been hijacked and replaced by a monster, a golem.
The issue is not why I’d want to do that, but the fact that Passport clearly does not work for its purported use – an interoperable, universal single sign-on.
I’d have all sorts of reasons for using Linux to access a variety of Passport sites – including Hotmail; security would be only the most obvious one. (How many IE exploits this month?)
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not *upset* that it didn’t work, just disappointed.
From what we know from Palladium, LaGrande, is that both technology is optional. You can make an OS, don’t use it, and be fine with it. Of course, you would need to have them on when you use Windows.
So, for example, you got your new Prescott computer. You can go to BIOS, switch off LaGrande (a nice feature if it is anything like IBM’s), and use Linux. Or use Windows with it on.
The only people that would be forced to use it is Windows users. Besides, I think this is bad for Linux because of its open source nature, it can’t be Palladium nor LaGrande compatible, while Microsoft and Intel paint a really nice rosy picture about it, get customers to demand it, and move to Windows.
Nice plan no? 🙂
The last I checked, I could log into Passport on Linux (in Konqueror, mind you). but that’s a long time ago, I’m using Yahoo! now, I don’t know if this holds true.
Besides, Microsoft never promised universal access. It only promised .NET Framework to be universal.
Get your head out of your ass…
For those that dismiss what I say because it doesn’t match with the narrow vision of the world that has been downloaded into their brains by the mainstream media, I offer my sympathy.
And for those who still have a spark of life yet, who have the holy fire and want to truly know what is happening in the world —
Download the slides on TCPA, which is what Palladium/LaGrande are implementing. With a new name as TCPA got some bad media spin in the past. Go ahead, read it. If you want to get something other than the spoonfed nerd sugar you get from most of the tech sites.
You will not be able to simply ‘turn it off’. What an ingenuous thing to say. People go to prison for turning off copy protection these days. It is a felony crime to circumvent DRM today. Courtesy of the DMCA and to some extent, the NET (No Electronic Theft) act.
You may be able to choose to run a non-DRM OS. But then the content providers will not let you see the web, documents, movies, movies, etc. They will not play on a non-DRM OS. And the software you buy will not install or run on a non-DRM OS.
“The corporate mass-media serve to divert the unwashed masses and reinforce the basic social values: passivity, submissiveness to authority, the overriding virtue of greed and personal gain, lack of concern for others, fear of real or imagined enemies, etc.
“The goal is to keep the bewildered herd bewildered. It’s unnecessary for them to trouble themselves with what’s happening in the world. In fact, it’s undesirable — if they see too much of reality they may set themselves to change it.” — Noam Chomsky, M.I.T. professor of linguistics

I’m sorry…. is it now where we are suppose to care?
Anyway, nice slideshow – it doesn’t have backing behind it except some paranoia… but… nice nontheless. Interesting to note it is made with Office.
You kill any minute traces of credibility that you have by posting a quote by Noam Chomsky.
to the prophet:
Can’t sleep, clowns will eat me … can’t sleep, clowns will eat me … can’t sleep, clowns will eat me.
we’re tooled on speakeasy by the bay. be afraid.
Anonymous, you probably have a stale authentication cookie. Try deleting your passport cookie and then re-logging in. I’ve seen this happen even in Windows.
