Enterprise Library 5.0 on XP: additional test pass, no issues

It’s been a week since we released Enterprise Library 5.0. I’ve been watching the blogosphere, tweets, Codeplex comments and reviews. The feedback seems to be overwhelmingly positive. One minor ripple that appeared is the fact that we didn’t include Windows XP in our platform test matrix. I’ve already responded and explained why. I’ve also indicated that we saw no reason why Enterprise Library 5.0 wouldn’t work on XP. However, to make sure that this concern doesn’t turn into a dissatisfier, the Enterprise Library test team has conducted an additional test pass on Windows XP SP3 and no issues have been found. For those of you who care about running EntLib5 on XP, here’s an official confirmation from Microsoft patterns & practices – it works!

I’ve updated the online Release Notes accordingly.
