What's New in WCF 3.5?

13. August 2007 06:36

Last week, I mentioned that I am about to begin a posting blitz about the goodness of WCF 3.5.  I will be starting that series of posts tomorrow.  Before I start drilling down into the details, I thought that I would post a general overview of the upcoming topics.

These are listed in no particular order:

  1. ASP.NET AJAX Support for Consuming WCF Services
  2. Support for REST Style Services
  3. More Love Between Workflow and WCF
  4. Various New Tools
  5. More WS-* Protocols
  6. Create RSS & ATOM Feeds for Services
  7. Better Support for WCF in a Partial Trust Environment

This is not intended to be a comprehensive list.  It's merely some of the major new features that I will be drilling into on my blog over the next couple of months.  It may not sound like much, but these are an exciting addition to WCF.  The framework is becoming a lot more polished in the 3.5 release.
