Where did CLR 3.0 Go?

The PDC provide us with CLR 4.0 – a push for an environment that works together, faster with less bugs. It’s clear from the presentation that .NET just seems to be accelerating away from what Sun is doing in the Java JVM space. Here are a few highlights:

  • ContractsContracts was bound to turn up at some point in .NET given the MSR Spec# project
  • Tuple support – This should keep the Python fans happy 🙂
  • GC Enhancements – workstation has a new background collection feature, server has Gen 2 notification
  • Corrupted State Exception
  • Threading, Parallel, Core enhancements – Parallel Extensions and ThreadPool
  • Profiling

Off topic:

  • Silverlight Testing Framework
  • If you still don’t get Oslo, this maybe a worthwhile read.
  • Oslo Tutorials – here and here
  • CCR & DSS Case Studies – what $399.95 USD gets you
  • Microsoft has two hypervisors
  • F# @ PDC
  • Prism 2.x to support Silverlight?
  • With the improvements in WF4, should I now consider it for a trade ticket UI with workflow dependencies between UI components?
  • Covariance and Contravariance in C# 4.0
  • CEP presentations (24)

  1. Funny that you feel the CLR is “accelerating away” from “what Sun is doing in the JVM space” when the CLR is years behind the JVM in JIT optimizations and garbage collection.

  2. […] Where did CLR 3.0 Go? – mdavey asks an interesting question – where did CLR V3 go since we are going to get V4 in the .NET 4 release. […]

  3. […] 13, 2008 Matt mentioned the addition of tuples to CLR 4.0. Very happy to see that. Tuples help avoid the unnecessary introduction of types that […]

  4. The problem with Oslo isn’t that people don’t “get” it. The problem with Oslo is that seasoned developers “get” Oslo just like they “get” MDA, 4GL, CASE, and an entire industry history of similar purported just-about-to-revolutionize-everything technologies/methodologies/approaches/what have you. The proof will be in the pudding, but given the impact of previous similar efforts both at MSFT and elsewhere, don’t get your hopes up. If you’re buying into Oslo wholesale at this early juncture, I have a lovely bridge for sale in the New York area that you might be interested in. 😉
