urig Tidbits from a .net life

I'm not 100% sure but it seems Microsoft has silently (?) launched IIS version 7.0. This is said to be a part of Windows Vista. Oddly enough I've not seen any launch announcement from MS. Maybe I just missed it?

The new version of IIS is said to implement a lesson from the Apache Web Server - modularity. Functionality previously embedded in older version of IIS has been relocated to modules that can optionally be installed alongside a core IIS server. This would allow for better security as administrators can minimize the surface of the server by including only necessary modules.

Another feature worth mentioning is that the metabase (IIS' registry like configuration settings store) has been dropped in favor of an XML based configuration. Compatability with the older IIS6.0 metabase is served by a Metabase Compatibility component that enables old scripts to work against older metabase APIs.
