ADO.NET Data Services v1.5 CTP2!
Yesterday we announced that the CTP 2 of the ADO.NET Data Services framework (yeah, Astoria) is available for download. We put in a ton of work on this release, ranging from adding better support for high-end services to making it easier to write applications in Silverlight by having cross-domain and proper data-binding support.
Official announcement is here, and includes details on where to download from, what to watch for (it's still a CTP, comes with fine-print :) ), and a list of the new and updated features.
Also, many folks in the Astoria Team have been writing a bunch of content to cover the new features, so watch the Astoria Team blog as well as related blogs for all sorts of samples and details to come up.
