At WPC 2010, Bob Muglia announced that the “Dallas” CTP3 would be available within 30 days. Microsoft now released the Dallas CTP 3 live in production. CTP 3 brings with it a number of exciting improvements, rounding out the Dallas experience and making it easier to develop applications using data from Dallas subscriptions.
CTP3 brings with it a number of small incremental changes as well as a number of larger, highly-requested new features such as: » Basic Authentication to authenticate users of Dallas data offerings » Flexible querying of OData content, as announced earlier this year at Mix – beyond simple web services! » Support for Add Service Reference in Visual Studio » New content providers and data.
