Upcoming Windows Phone 7 Mobile OS release, code named "Mango" contains over 500 new features (and over 1000 new APIs), is full of improvements - from the core OS to the performance of UI scrolling - and "Mango" puts the user in control of almost everything the system has to offer.
"Two new core or system-level features in "Mango" are a generational garbage collector and support for multitasking, or the ability to concurrently run application processes in both the foreground and background. GGC and Multitasking are going to be great for developers and users alike," noted Microsoft.
How does multitasking in "Mango" work? How is it designed? Lot's of great user features, but what about improvements to the developer experience?
