Was monitoring blog headlines and found this: ASP.NET daddy, Scott Guthrie has announced in a blog post that ASP.NET 2.0 and Visual Web Developer has hit ZBB (Zero Bug Bounce i.e. in Microsoft land, no bugs older than 48 hours in a given milestone). Next would be the big security push and then, the final Beta 2 push. Okay, let's see how long that takes. ;-)
On a related note, there are product design changes between Beta 1 and Beta 2. Guess I will not be toying with ASP.NET 2.0 seriously till Beta 2 is out.
