Some news from the next framework of MS names .NET framework 3.5.
You can see on this blog the list of new assembly embded in the framework!
And the funny thing is that we have a lot of things which have been ever done by mono team.
System.Data.Linq.dll – The implementation for LINQ to SQL.
System.Xml.Linq.dll – The implementation for LINQ to XML.
System.Data.DataSetExtensions.dll – The implementation of LINQ to DataSet.
System.Core.dll – In addition to the LINQ to Objects implementation, this assembly includes the following: HashSet, TimeZoneInfo, Pipes, ReaderWriteLockSlim, System.Security.*, System.Diagnostics.Eventing.* and System.Diagnostics.PerformanceData.
An addin system
Mono have extract it from monodevelop.
System.AddIn.dll, System.AddIn.Contract.dll – New AddIn (plug-in) model.
A p2p lib
The monoTorrent lib have the same goal😉
System.Net.dll – Peer to Peer APIs.
Here is a new thing not ever done by mono team which will be very interesting for windows word but which is useless for linux:
System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement.dll – Wrapper for Active Directory APIs.
This thing must be linked to the base of registry because System.Management is done for it and not usefull for Mono.
System.Management.Instrumentation.dll – WMI 2.0 managed provider (combined with System.Management namespace in System.Core.dll).
A refresh of WinFX and linked to other new things.
System.WorkflowServices.dll and System.ServiceModel.Web.dll – WCF
System.Windows.Presentation.dll –WPF support for the System.AddIn mentioned of point 3 above.
A refresh of atlas lib
System.Web.Extensions.dll – The implementation for ASP.NET AJAX (for more web enhancements, follow links from here) plus also the implementation of Client Application Services and the three ASP.NET 3.5 controls.
It is for none dotNET world who want to use the standard C lib
System.VisualC.STLCLR.dll – STL development in the managed world.
So, As you can see, there is not a lot of new things. A lot of idea has ever been been develop by Mono team. This is really funny to see that MS are behind Mono team for some part.
