.NET Framework 3.0 and 3.5

    Question

  • Can anyone clarify the functionality difference between .NET 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5. AFAIK 3.0 and 2.0 are mutually exclusive. With the .NET 3.5 release along with Visual Studio 2008, is 3.5 is upgrade to 3.0 or again some differential over 3.0 (mutually exclusive). If 3.5 is addition to 3.0 what new classes/components are added in 3.5?

    .Net 3.0  = .net 2.0 features + WF+WPF+WCF+ Cardspace

    .Net 3.5 = .Net 3.0 features + LINQ, ASP.NET AJAX, new controls, richer WCF support, and a few other features that

                    aren't in .NET 3.0. http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/06/20/vs-2008-multi-targeting-support.aspx

  • Hi Shahzeb,

     

    No, in ASP.Net 2.0 we have to install the Ajax set up for working with Ajax.

    But in .Net 3.5 its inbuilt.

    We just have to use that by including the .dll

    Provides Support for generic types and methods
    Provides Azax Technology..

    .Net Framework 3.5 :
    Azax is inbuilt we do not need to install it.
    The .NET Framework 3.5 introduces new features for the technologies in 2.0 and 3.0 and additional technologies in the form of new assemblies. The following technologies are introduced with the .NET Framework 3.5:LINQ,New compilers for C#, Visual Basic, and C++,ASP.NET AJAX,Additional types in the Base class library.

  • Ok Ajax extensions are inbuilt with framework 3.5 but I dont know why Microsoft has not provided the rich Ajax controls with 3.5,you have to download them separately.
    By the way , do u have any idea what are the new features of new compilers for C# and VB.Net using 3.5 ?
    Thanks ,
