I haven’t seen anyone notice that Movie Maker 2 beta is available now. The internal spam claims that is a pretty good upgrade. I’ve yet to use it since I have next to no movie files to play with, but the ui looks promising.
New C# Language Features (someday). Chris Sells: “On November 7th, at the OOPSLA Conference in Seattle, WA, C# creator Anders Hejlsberg unveiled several potential language features for the next major release of Visual C# .NET. The four primary features Anders spoke about were:
-Generics, a form of C++ templates that makes reusing existing code easier
-Iterators, a construct that makes traversing collections of data significantly faster and easier
-Anonymous methods, an easier way to perform simple tasks using delegates
-Partial types, a means for programmers to split code across multiple files” [Sam Ruby]
Here is the powerpoint presentation with some examples.
