New C# 3.0 Features Announced

In case you are like me and NOT at the PDC, Microsoft has obviously been making some big announcements.  One announcement was around the new features planned for C# 3.0

The LINQ Project was also announced at the same time.  This gives C# developers some language extensions.  It appears this includes set operations, transform operations and some query technology.  I am sure we will hear a lot more of this over the coming months.

UPDATE : Here is a great source on the LINQ Project.  It seems to be stirring quite a buzz.

On a side note, Microsoft has posted the Visual Studio 2005 RC1 to the MSDN Subscribers area.  This is a big step in getting it in our hands.  The interesting thing I noticed is the Beta 2 Go-live license is not supported with RC1.  In my opinion this makes RC1 just another CTP.
