Visual Studio codename “Orcas” March 2007 CTP and this is the first time that features from .NET Framework 3.5 have been included. I’ve already seen this on Matt Winklers blog and Somasegars blog. I would recommend you get the Team Suite-Only VPC to review the new features in .NET Framework 3.5.

Here’s some detail of the new things to look for from WF and WCF.

* Workflow enabled services – process and messaging together
* Web 2.0 AJAX friendly (works with ASP.NET AJAX Client) and REST enabled WCF services
* New project templates and other new features in Visual Studio for WF and WCF
* More WS-* Standards Support including WS-AtomicTransaction, WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-SecureConversation and WS-Coordination
* RSS and ATOM Syndication Support in WCF
* Partial Trust for WCF applications deployed through click-once
* Rules Data Improvements
