Microsoft is working on a open source content-management application and set of reusable components codenamed “Orchard,” and is slated to share details about its plans for Orchard at TechEd Europe. Here’s some thing known so far about project:

“Orchard is a new effort to produce free, open source, reusable components and a full-featured CMS application built on these components to produce a variety of different types of web sites. Our small core team of dedicated ASP.NET developers’re seeking guidance and contribution of .NET community at-large to help shape this project in its early stages. Bradley Millington will be hosting this interactive discussion to invite you to get involved on ground floor - to tell us what you’d want to see from project, what components you could envision using in your own applications, and how to best channel contributions of community to make it all happen. We can talk strategy, logistics, features, or anything else that’s on your mind. Please join us!”
