On March 25th at his Tech-Ed India keynote Jason Zander announced some great new resources for developers. Our team has been working hard on these releases and I’m happy to share with you that on April 25th the Multi-Targeting Pack for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Platform Update 1 (KB2495638) will be available for download.
We also have a great new Hands on Lab for State Machine to get you started so why not take an afternoon to learn how you can add the State Machine activity to your solutions. Also if you plan on using extensions from Microsoft.Activities or our unit testing framework Microsoft.Activities.UnitTesting be sure to download version 1.8 which includes binaries built for Platform Update 1.
After installing .NET Framework Platform Update 1, you will see new Target Framework available in Visual Studio in your project properties. Just select one of the Platform Update 1 target framework profiles.
Then create a workflow and you will be happy to see some new activities in your WF4 toolbox.
And in case you missed it, the WCF RIA team shipped a great new release last month as well.
And of course, we have more great new releases on the way so keep watching this space for more details.
