The .NET Endpoint blog announced this morning the availability of Windows Server AppFabric Beta 2, which can be downloaded at http://msdn.microsoft.com/appfabric. According to the announcement, Beta 2 was written to work against the RC of Visual Studio 2010, and is apparently now feature complete:
This build represents our “feature complete” milestone. That is, it contains all the features that we plan to ship in Windows Server AppFabric v1 by Q3 of 2010. For this release we focused on building a provider model for persistence, monitoring, and cache configuration stores. In our Beta 1 release we supported only the SQL Server based persistence and monitoring providers that we shipped and supported only an XML file based or SQL Server based cache configuration store. In Beta 2 we now also support providers for other database platforms or for other types of stores, in the case of persistence and cache configuration.
This is an exciting milestone for the team, and will certainly be a great time to begin evaluating Windows Server AppFabric for inclusion in upcoming projects.
