ASP.NET 3.5 Officially it is !!!

Well, I blogged about Visual Studio 2008 and have just started a series on Whats new in Visual Studio 2008 for Web Developers.  However, I also wanted to write on ASP.NET 3.5 which is released along with .NET 3.5.

ASP.NET 3.5 has the following key features

Built-in ASP.NET AJAX - System.Web.Extensions has the version 3.5.0.0 and yes it can happily co-exist with ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 with System.Web.Exntesions version 1.0.61025.0 which works well with ASP.NET 2.0

List View Server Control a Databound control which allows you to control the output HTML Format unlike GridView, DataGrid which render HTML Tables

DataPager Server Control which combined with List View can provide a flexible paging mechanism with full customization support.  The built-in paging mechanism of DataGrid, GridView etc., provide little support for customization

LINQDataSource Control which allows you to bind directly to LINQ Expressions.  It pretty much follows the same DataSource pattern that was shipped with .NET 2.0.

Again, I have started this thread and I would write more about each of the above controls in the subsequent posts.  I have one big list of things to write about during the following weeks !!!

Cheers !!!
