Would be nice if Msoft fixed the bugs and other BS in VS 2003 and VS 2005
before coming out with new and probably very buggy Orcas version!

Will this version of the Visual Studio 2005 Extensions let me double-click
on a button, and have it create the event? Wiring everything up by hand was
the only real issue I had with the last version...

No, it won't, the WPF designer is still in it's early design phase and
extremely limited in capabilities. Remember Orcas is scheduled to hit the
streets late 2007 early 2008, I guess we still have a number of CTP's to go
before we will see a fully functional designer.

Visual Studio 2005 extensions for .NET Framework 3.0
So if I install these, will I still be able to compile libraries against the 2.0 framework?

yes, as the compiler and runtime remains the same (2.0)

With the 'Visual Studio 2005 extensions',
you just get some _additional_ project templates/wizards/editors for building WPF/3.0... applications.

| exactly, as I wrote in my first post:

| Final Fidalgo CTP

Sure, but your reply:
<
100% RTM
http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2006/nov06/11-06MSVisualStudioPR.mspx
is rather confusing (1) 100% and (2) presspass doesn't talk about Fidalgo
(WinFX VS 2005 Extentions).

Note that the blog post is rather confusing too...
<snip
So, the October CTP is the one to get, if you're doing WPF development into
the future. /snip>
this makes you think that the latest( Fidalgo) CTP is October, while in
reality it's the November CTP, no big deal though.
More confusing is that last sentence, IMO is you're serious about WPF, you
should know/accept that the October (and November) CTP is "final" but still
quite limited in functionality, so you'll have to live with it until Orcas
hits the streets.

Well that confused the hell out of me, so I decided to read up on it
all. What has caused confusion is the choice of name ".Net 3.0" when it
isn't really in fact a new version of .Net (ie. an upgrade from C# 2.0
to C# 3.0, or anything like that) but merely the *addition* of some
other bits to the existing 2.0 framework.

So I've come to realise that as a Web developer using .Net, this is of
absolutely no use to me :(
