Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Architecture

This section of the Visual Studio 2008 Learning Guide looks at improvements to the architectural tools that come with the IDE. These tools were released last year under the .NET Framework 3.0 umbrella, and some changes have been made to accommodate the release of the .NET Framework 3.5. After perusing these resources, go on to the next section of the learning guide, which looks at smart client application development in VS 2008.

A look at .NET Framework 3.5: WCF and WF more closely aligned, REST supported (TheServerSide.NET)
Although Windows Communication Foundation and Windows Presentation Foundation are important, they and other aspects of NET 3.0 may be viewed as new features, not completely revised frameworks, in .NET 3.5, TheServerSide.NET explains.

.NET Framework 3.5 new features, with a focus on architecture (Thom Robbins)
Here Microsoft's director of .NET platform product management provides a handy chart that lists the new features in .NET 3.5. He pays particular attention to workflow enabled Web services, WS-* Standards improvements and RSS and ATOM syndication in Windows Communication Foundation.

Microsoft releases .NET 3.0 samples for VS 2008 (Microsoft)
The company has put out a bunch of sample downloads for the architectural tools in the .NET Framework 3.0 -- Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Workflow Foundation and Windows CardSpace. These samples are compatible with Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2.
