The Morning Brew #125

Posted by on 30 Jun 2008 | Tagged as: .NET, Development, Morning Brew

Too many interesting posts this weekend – I didn’t get through my full list of feeds this morning, and even still had links left over – some of which will make an appearance over the next couple of days.


  • NHibernate 2.0 Beta 1 Released – NHibernate 2 has reached Beta 1 Status – which based on previous experience of the betas will be quite usable. This release is meant to bring it inline with Hibernate 3.2 in terms of functionality.
  • Rhino Mocks 3.5 Release Candidate – Ayende announces that Rhino Mocks 3.5 is now at Release Candidate status
  • Release: Composite Application Guidance for WPF 2008 RC1 – Prism goes Release candidate – Composite Application Guidance for WPF 2008 RC1 is a framework to help enterprise application developers who use WPF to create flexible applications using loosely coupled design



  • RefactorMyCode.com – Get some support from your fellow developers with this new community site where the community is invited to refactor some code. Looks like it could be a useful learning tool.
  • Silverlight Control Builder Contest – A contest for US based Silverlight 2 Beta 2 developers – with some quite impressive prizes

The Morning Brew #124

Subscriber numbers took a bit of a dip (back down below my magic milestone) so the celebrations will have to wait 😉

Today’s post is also a little light on content – I’ve decided to avoid the Entity Framework Petition Debate, as there is so much back and forth it would be too difficult (and dangerous) to sumarise by picking a few links and still keep it fair.


The Morning Brew #123

Tuesday’s subscriber count hit a quite significant subscriber milestone – many thanks to all of you who are subscribed and reading the Morning Brew every day. Here’s hoping that the level is maintained for the rest of the week – Tomorrow’s post will contain a little celebratory item.


  • VSLab – Visual Studio Lab is aiming to provide functionality in Visual Studio similar to a tool like MatLab or Mathematica, and utilises F# as the underlying engine. From the screen shots it looks very interesting
  • Hobocopy x64 Build Available – Craig Andera releases an x64 version of HoboCopy, and reminds us all he is still looking for someone to take over the maintainer role on the project.
