.NET Hobbyist Programmer Staying Confused in a Busy World

Now this is neat -- it is only 22MB download and 154MB uncompressed!  The ultimate .NET Framework programming toy.  New features in the SSCLI/Rotor 2.0 release include:

  • Generics
  • Lightweight Code Generation (LCG)
  • Open static and closed instance Delegates
  • Relaxed Delegates
  • Loader and System.Reflection re-writes [\sscli20\clr\src\bcl\system\reflection]
  • Metadata format updates
  • New C# features like Anonymous Methods, Anonymous Delegates and Generics support [\sscli20\clr\src\bcl\system\collections\generic]
  • Numerous BCL additions
  • Stub based dispatch support (in supported callsites)
  • Numerous bug fixes

Security changes to look at include:

  • Transparency [\sscli20\clr\src\vm\securitytransparentassembly.cpp]
  • Revamped compressed stack [\sscli20\clr\src\vm\newcompressedstack.cpp]
  • New declarative security metadata format [\sscli20\clr\src\vm\securitydeclarative.cpp]

Get it at  My favorite (so far) is \sscli20\clr\src\bcl\system\text\stringbuilder.cs.
