.NET Web Roadmap for 3.5 (ASP.NET, Silverlight, IIS 7)

Scott Guthrie posted some fantastic info on ASP.NET Extensions 3.5 to match up with Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5.

Highlights:

  • Silverlight 1.1 is now Silverlight 2.0
  • Silverlight 2.0 will start to get some of the great features that WPF has
  • Some of the ASP.NET AJAX Futures (like the browser history control) will be moved into ASP.NET AJAX
  • IIS 7 will ship early next year
  • There will be new ways to deploy to IIS 7 and do things like versioning and rolling back on single servers and web farms

Great stuff…check it out!
