Where is the "List of bugs" document for .NET 2.0 SP1 ???

I just don't understand.

Why can't I find the obvious needed document of what was changed in the newly released .Net 2.0 Service Pack 1?

If you look at the download page of .NET 1.1 SP1 you'll see in the "Related Resources" section a link to SP1 Knowledge Base Article.

so why on earth is the same doc missing from the download page of .NET 2.0 SP1 ?

My guess? It is not ready yet.

 

I went to our R&D Manager and ask him whether we would be able to install SP1 in our next release. So he asked me: "what is in this service pack?". And I answered:

"Gee boss, I wish I know..."

 

You there over Microsoft!

you won't be able to say RTM (I prefer the polite version), that is if you don't actually supply the manual...

 

P.S.

I will be glad to update this blog with a link and an apology if this doc exists in the time of writing and it is just me who just can't find it.

UPDATE: The missing article was published!!! read my comment
