Considering that the HTML working group is dropping the Version aspects. after the full ratification of the spec known as HTML 5, and it will just be known as HTML at that point. and given the Editor of HTML 5 is expecting final ratification of html 5 sometime around 2020.
Please explain your point sialivi.
Most of the items from the HTML 5 spec that have been implemented are at least in the stable state and already implemented (sometimes poorly) in other browsers. (some areas IE still needs help)
The HTML working group is already to start splitting the spec much the way that CSS 3 has split. after the base of HTML 5 is complete.
@exoteric: Really?? given that was Douglas Purdy's baby and the announcement he made that he left to go to Facebook??
Kinda irritated with MS. have been waiting for a store based technology since Oh. Cairo.
Really I would Like to see technology that can Support Graph Mathmatics in a scale base. Or the Relationship is actually as important or in some cases more important, than the data. current rdbms really suxors at this. (WinFS in its original design actually supported graphs fairly well, albeit a little slow and for those that cared, was one of the MAJOR aspects that was very much overlooked.)
Dragon Age rules, slight correction in the vid though. Bioware Made Neverwinter Nights, at least the awsome version with the toolset. Neverwinter Nights 2 was made by Obsidian Games, (if memory serves me correct, through a license from Bioware) this is
before the sell off of the computer licenseing of DnD to infrogames AKA Atari, which has basically sat on the license since then.
Audio is very low in the silverlight stream, I have to turn the speakers to 100% and the silverlight volume to 100% to even get a chance to hear it. and I am on windows 7, on silverlight 3. same as the original, audio is slightly louder in this encoding
Sounds like great things. Yes discoverability has become an issue, especially PDC videos etc.
I personally would like to see more screen casts Especially with new areas, both in the realm of Dev but also in usability in areas such as Office and other programs.
It is good to hear that the different sites are coming under one platform. But in that light, PDC imo should get the treatment of Mix as a conference type site that bubbles into Channel 9. Perhaps even getting screen casts and feature reviews specific to
the conference and as the stuff productizes more into the mainstream.
Can also ask for More WPF content: especially moving into a MVVM with MEF point of view. perhaps a series of screen casts in architeching and implementing such an ap.
Agree with the point of missing the Scoble/Rory type of interviews. although the Going Deep interviews are the most interesting for me. Well those and the Tina history of MS have been simply amazing from a nostalgia point of view.
And yes I did watch the entire video, shame on those that don't:) Shout out to Duncan. He needs to be in more videos:)
I am hopeing that is what was implied when Ian stated the math/science area. There are a lot of areas where performance and be explicitly improved with SSE and GPGPU support. I don't believe there would be much involved to add that support, the JIT engine
would have to be smart enough to understand the underlying hardware that is available to choose level of sse support for example or go the safe way and choose the lowest common denominator between amd and intel.
GPGPU gets more interesting, dx11 introduces compute shaders, but to be honest, it is a subset of what is available in the GPGPU area on both nvidia and amd, and then you have Intel embedded video which throws an interesting aspect to that area. (or the
other video card oem's) Open CL imo is a more robust platform on the outset but I don't see dx resting on its morals going forward either.
The question then becomes how to support on downlevel machines?? Talking cells phones etc.
