One of the side projects I’ve been working on lately is helping to shepherd the Semantic Versioning specification (SemVer) along to its 2.0.0 release. I want to thank everyone who sent pull requests and engaged in thoughtful, critical, spirited feedback about the spec. Your involvement has made it better! I also want to thank Tom for creating SemVer in the first place and trusting me to help move it along. I’ve mentioned SemVer in the past as it relates to NuGet. The 2.0.0 release of SemVer addresses
some of the issues I raised. What’s Changed? Not too much has changed. Most of the changes focus around clarifications. Build metadata Perhaps the biggest change is the addition of optional build metatada (what we used to call a build number). This simply allows you to add a bit of metadata to a version in a manner that’s compliant with SemVer. The metadata does not affect version precedence. It’s analogous to a code comment. It’s useful for internal package feeds and for being able to tie a specific version to some mechanism that generated...(Read whole news on source site)

Last summer I put up a post that offered a collection of free Microsoft eBooks across a variety of topics and the response was incredible. Because of the phenomenal response, I followed it up with a second post that contained another set of free eBooks for people to download. After these posts went live, over 1,000,000 free eBooks were downloaded by people around the world! Well, I thought I would once again put together another new collection of absolutely FREE Microsoft eBooks for all of you to access and download to use in
your quest for information, resources, knowledge, etc. As with the past collections, these eBooks are completely FREE, they are not time-bombed, there is no catch, and yes, please let your friends, family, colleagues, or anyone else that you think would benefit from these know that they are available here and to come download the ones they are interested in. I’d love to give away another 1,000,000 free eBooks again this round, so spread the word and please enjoy these resources from Microsoft to you. ...(Read whole news on source site)

We’ve just completed and launched a new version of the Microsoft forums. We’ve worked really hard to substantially improve the experience both for people looking for answers and those providing them. We started by making it easier to find what you are looking for. Instead of navigating categories to find those that might be relevant, we’ve started with search as the entry. You can search directly from the root and get results immediately. The categories show up on the right hand side allowing you to filter your results. We’ve also reformatted the page to provide
more space for your content and added previews so you can see what the thread is about before opening it. And you can collapse the categories to get all your real estate for content… And we’ve added indicators to show private forums and abusive content. Since Forums now handles its own search, you can find threads which are highly related. If you land on a thread page after using a search engine (Bing/Google), the query string from the search engine is automatically transferred...(Read whole news on source site)
