Microsoft does it again...
Last time Microsoft released .NET Framework 3.5 they have included .NET 2.0 SP1 inside it, and it took them very long time to release a document telling what have been changed in this SP1.
Today Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service pack 1 Beta has been released.
and Microsoft even tells what inside this SP1 (see the download page overview section)
it is written there (on the Brief Description) that it includes .NET Framework 2.0 service pack 2 too.
They haven't released a stand alone .NET 2.0 SP 2...
And worst - They haven't told what have been changed in this .NET 2.0 SP 2.
This information is critical - as most of current running applications are built on .NET 2.0 (with or without SP1)
So we (the developers) need to know if there are any "red bits" on this SP2 or not.
We need to know what have been changed - so we would be able to decide which type of testing we need to do before applying this SP2.
So if someone have this info - Please release it.
Thanks in Advance...
p.s. all stand for .NET Framework 3.0 service pack 2 too...
You can find .NET Frameworks 2.0 SP2 and 3.0 SP2 bootstrapper packages (RTM, I hope) by following the link (from MSDN). I haven't tested it.
If you prefer a very funny movie instead... (from the company I work for - proper disclosure)
