In case you are like me and NOT at the PDC, Microsoft has obviously been making some big announcements. One announcement was around the new features planned for C# 3.0
The LINQ Project was also announced at the same time. This gives C# developers some language extensions. It appears this includes set operations, transform operations and some query technology. I am sure we will hear a lot more of this over the coming months.
UPDATE : Here is a great source on the LINQ Project. It seems to be stirring quite a buzz.
On a side note, Microsoft has posted the Visual Studio 2005 RC1 to the MSDN Subscribers area. This is a big step in getting it in our hands. The interesting thing I noticed is the Beta 2 Go-live license is not supported with RC1. In my opinion this makes RC1 just another CTP.
