It won't be long before we can get our hands on the final release of Visual Studio "Orcas" and .NET 3.5. For those of us who did not attend MIX '07 you can still get a sneak peak. I watched Web Development Using Visual Studio "Orcas" by Omar Khan and I am quite impressed with the changes they are going to include.
The extensive changes and improvements include:
- Extensive support for CSS with refactoring for CSS selectors
- New ListView control which gives you full control over the HTML of a databound control
- New pager control which can be attached to any databound control
- New LinqDataSource with declarative quering of LINQ objects
It will be so much easier to do AJAX development with these new features.
