It looks like we won't be able to release the final version of WSSF for 2008 the week of February 8th as we had planned. We are dependent upon some new features available in GAX/GAT 1.4 and this looks like it will not be shipping until later in February. The good news is that the GAX/GAT team is busy adding a bunch of stuff that will make installation/uninstallation easier as well as some changes that we requested to support custom project types and registration in the VS experimental hive, the bad news is that it will take a bit longer to get this out the door.

What not having GAX/GAT 1.4 means, really, is that we cannot get the source out the door. However, we could ship another CTP of the binary version running on GAX 1.3 if there is enough interest. Post a response to this thread if you are interested.

Hi Bob,

We definitely would like to get another CTP. The current one has some really annoying bugs (already filed weeks ago), that hinder our current development team. We've been using the Service Factory since its inception in March 2007, and have about 19 models that are modified on a daily basis. It would really help us if you can ship a CTP.

Hi Brumfb,

We also would like to have another CTP as soon as possible while we wait for the final release...

Hi,

We are definitely interested to see the latest version. somehow we were unable to get the CTP running under VS2008 in our organization, so we are generating the code under 2005 and using generating solution under 2008. Its painfull and trying to find out the solution ASAP.

Thanks,
Ajay

I've posted Service Factory-Modeling Edition Feb CTP (VS2008). This should incorporate a number of fixes requested here from the prior CTP.

I'll keep you posted on the final release, but we are still awaiting a final GAX/GAT 1.4 build.
