Başlık herşeyi anlatıyor. Ama söz edilmesi gereken bir kaç değişiklik mevcut tabi ve söz de edilmiş:

Scott Guthrie: Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 Beta
Scott Hanselman: VS2008 and .Net 3.5 SP1 Beta - Should You Fear This Release?
Somasegar's WebLog (MSDN Blogger): Visual Studio 2008 and .NET FX 3.5 SP1 Beta available now

Bir şey eklemek istemiyorum, çünkü eminim MS evanjelistleri onlarca defa aynı şeyi yazmışlardır. ;)

    (tabii ki) InfoQ: New version of .NET Disguised as a "Service Pack"

From the author of The Reciprocality Project white papers:

"Reciprocality is a private project to better understand the nature of the stresses and challenges facing the
software industry at the moment, particularly in respect of deep cultural issues in the model of the nature of
work. The intention is to be able to assist organisations to create conditions where they can maximise their
ability to attract, retain and get the best from able staff, while ensuring that younger staff are provided with
the conceptual and technical mentoring necessary to develop into aware and effective creative engineers.

The project is evaluating 10 years teaching experience in a very broad social and cultural context, and
appears to be generating interesting results. It would seem that the way that software engineering is
perceived in society at large can tell us much about difficulties society will face as the economy becomes
more clearly dominated by Information Age issues."

I downloaded the whole project site in PDF and checked out some of the articles. Though it may be dated old, I think it contains some valuable information.

A while (or may be a year ago), I blogged about the White Screen of Darn. It came with the Visual Studio 2005 designer, and occurs when for a reason designer couldn't render (generally referenced 3rd party) UI components.

And, it happens again.

With the new Visual Studio 2008 interface also we have a new WSoD error screen :).

The problem shows in a form, when an assembly of a 3rd party UI component directly or indirecly referenced multiple times. As the problematic error message will be like "type Asy1.TypeA couldn't be cast to Asy1.TypeA", this shows us, VS designer wrongly assumes same types as different types.

And here is the resolution: Clean the project, and Build it again.

Then, VS corrects its mistake, and shows designer without errror. ;)
