Some Very Early Information About ASP.NET 2.0

by John Peterson

I realize that most of you are too busy to bother trying to keep up with all the news and rumors that circulate in the ASP and .NET communities... that's why you come to us! The latest rumblings from the underground are about the next version of ASP.NET which is being called ASP.NET 2.0 (code-named Whidbey).

From what I can tell it's very early so don't expect it anytime soon. From what I hear, this is the version that is going to ship with the next version of Visual Studio (aka. sometime next year).


You can start by listening to ASP.NET Program Manager Scott Guthrie talk about the new features of ASP.NET 2.0 in this hour long .NET Rocks! Interview. If you don't have the time for that you can check out Edgar Sánchez's .NET Blog for his quick summary of the interview.

You can keep up to date by watching the ASP.NET site and the ASP.NET 2.0 thread in their forum.


Alex Homer's got a preview book called A First Look at ASP.NET v 2.0 coming out. For more info on the data side of things there's also First Look at ADO.NET and System Xml v 2.0. From what I can tell both should be out around October 24th.

A First Look at ASP.NET v 2.0 - 0321228960 First Look at ADO.NET and System Xml v 2.0 - 0321228391

There's supposed to be a listing of the table of contents and a list of major features for both books here:

A First Look at ASP.NET v 2.0
First Look at ADO.NET and System Xml v 2.0

but I've been having some trouble getting the site to come in.

If you find anything cool that I haven't listed here let me know and I'll post it so others can take a look at it as well.
