The PDC announcements fireworks continuous:

  • Microsoft Codename Max: With just a few clicks, you can create lists of your favorite photos, arrange them in the layout of your choice, and express them in beautiful views. Preview your photo lists as you build them until your presentation is perfect. You can even use our super hot 3D Mantle View(tm) to really show off your work!

  • C# 3.0 Language Enhancements introduces several language extensions that build on C# 2.0 to support the creation and use of higher-order, functional-style class libraries. The extensions enable construction of compositional APIs that have equal expressive power of query languages in domains such as relational databases and XML. Get more information, and try hands-on labs here.
  • The LINQ Project is a codename for a set of extensions to the .NET Framework that encompass language-integrated query, set, and transform operations. It extends C# and Visual Basic with native language syntax for queries and provides class libraries to take advantage of these capabilities.
