I’ve been implementing a couple of add-ins for VS 2005 and I just saw that there is a new release of the VS2005 SDK. The download is double the size of the last version, that has to be a good sign.. 🙂 Tweet

Transactional memory? Cool!

Joe Duffy has written a short introduction to something I hadn’t heard about before; Transactional memory.

Custom Data Provider (continued)
