In a recent post, Internet Explorer Program Manager Chris Wilson talks about his team's presence at the upcoming MIX07 event and sets expectations for what his team will cover there. [SPOILER ALERT] The long and short of it is that his team isn't yet prepared to discuss future plans. "We've gathered input from customers for the next version of IE through formal research like user studies and surveys, and also at conferences, comments on the IE blog, and direct emails from you; we will continue to listen at MIX07," Chris writes. Chris says the IE Team "will have more information to share about the next release in the future, but MIX07 is too early yet to discuss specifics."
Just as IE7 was a huge focus for MIX last year, the recent announcement of Silverlight will receive the lion's share of attention at this year's event (there are 16 sessions covering the topic to some degree). Some of the other sessions planned are:
- Making Money With RSS with Walter VonKoch
- Thinking In CSS: How To Build Great Looking Websites with Molly Holzschlag
- How To Make AJAX Applications Scream On The Client with Cyra Richardson
- IE7: Past, Present and Future with Chris Wilson
If you're planning to be at MIX07, the IE Team's sessions are a great way for you to understand what they were thinking with IE7 and the challenges they looked to resolve. Be sure to give them feedback and suggestions for their future work. And of course, keep an eye on the IE blog for updates and news.
