.NET Framework 3.0 - Release Candidate is available for download:
"These new technologies are Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Workflow Foundation, and Windows CardSpace (formerly code named "Infocard"). Microsoft plans to ship .NET Framework 3.0 as part of the Windows Vista operating system. In addition, Microsoft is making these technologies available on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003."
Man, that was fast, since .NET 2.0 was shipped less than a year ago. And seems like WCF part of .NET 3.0 is already ready for manufacturing:
"RC means "Release Candidate" and our team is really, really serious about this release being as close to what we intend to ship as we can ever get. Our database view with unresolved code-defects is essentially empty (there is a not more of a handful of small fixes for very esoteric scenarios that we're still doing for RTM)."
