Dev Notes From Around The 'Internets'
Here's some stuff flying around the "Internets" that may be of interest to developers.
First, the chatty Marc Fleury, ex of JBoss, flames some of the Apache faithful.
First of all, you gotta love anyone who leads with that terrific Kissinger quote. And also anyone who brings up aging Star Trek conventioneers.
Also, Microsoft is renaming Silverlight 1.1 (drum roll please) Silverlight 2.0 as noted in Scott Guthrie's blog.
Soma Somasegar also weighed in with the unsurprising rationale: "The Silverlight 1.1 versioning simply didn't do the enhancements justice so we decided to rename the next version to "Silverlight 2.0."
A new beta is due first quarter of next year.
