.NET Framework 3.0 RTM

8. November 2006 18:42

It is pratically old news at this point, but the RTM version of .NET Framework 3.0 (WinFX) has been released for download.  I took the plunge and installed the runtime on my VPS that is used to host this site.  This will finally allow me to start hosting some of my pet projects regarding WCF.

Congratulations to the WCF team for reaching a major milestone.  The same goes for the other teams (WPF, WF, and Cardspace) even though they aren't as cool as WCF. [;)]

Here are links to the downloads:

.NET 3.0 Framework Runtime (Web Download Bootstrapper)
.NET 3.0 Framework Runtime (Complete Installation Package for x86)
.NET 3.0 Framework Runtime (Complete Installation Package for x64)
