Those .net dudes have been busy!

Lordy. Check out ScottGu's blog of the changes in the beta of .net 3.5 SP1! This is way more than a service pack.

Tons of new stuff for the server, ASP.NET, ADO.NET and WCF, Visual Studio has had quite a bit of love but since I'm a closet fan of WPF, it's nice to see Dr Sneath's rundown of the substantial changes on the client side. I'm looking forward to the startup improvements...

And I like the .net Framework Client Profile - they're starting to split up the framework into a desktop version. A download the size of Adobe Reader is a nice way to put it into perspective. And a nice use of Windows Update to drizzle the full framework down in the background. Is this the start of work for getting .net support into Server Core?

Oh, and Greg Schecter covers some of the more interesting uses of the new Effects API.

Surely this can't be a service pack? Shouldn't this be .net 3.6?

Printing out an essay or paper, reading the first line and realizing there aren't any mistakes.<br />AWESOME!

Well good for you! I have a lot but one I just thought of was when you lick a crease of paper so that it'll rip in a straight line and it actually tears in a frayed straight line rather than rips awkwardly. I love that bleachy taste and that bleachy satisfaction.
