Runi Thomson announced he’s going to leave Sitecore. He will continue working with Sitecore, but no longer as a core developer. He will also become Sitecore Trainer. Runi, may I invite you to train LECTRIC in October? 🙂
I wish Runi all the best and hope we will hear from him as implementation partner of Sitecore!
Is isn’t dirrectly influenzing Sitecore and in someway it is. Altough it isn’t on their MSDN-subsite, Microsoft has just release .NET 3.0 RC1 (Runtime, SDK, Go Live!). Which brings more questions then answers. For this reason, CLR-manager and feature approver (the Ole @ Microsoft), Jason Zander, has cleart lot of stuff up with this podcast @ Channel 9. When you actually aren’t in the position to view the video or just want to read it,this post of Jason is a nice summary.
Enjoy this nice and rainy sunday…
I read in my SharpReader(which will be replaced with RssBandit, by Carnage4Life) that Microsoft did release XML Notepad 2.0. Which is a quite nice tool! It makes Sheer UI development and debugging Sitecore Items much easier. Take a look at the screenshot below:
/sitecore/home/content incl. children
List of the features in XML Notepad 2.0(list by Can Erten):
- Open source
- Comes with source code, samples (look at the directory you’ve installed)
- Very simple user interface
- Intellisense support based on XSD.
- Great navigation and adding of XML objects (like element, attribute, comment) simply by providing before and after points.
- Copy cut paste XML objects
- Find feature is also nice, it is possible to use regular expressions or Xpath language.
- XSL Output after the XSLT transformation.
- Error list similar faÃ§on of Visual Studio
Thanks to the ADO.NET Team Blog and Can Erten for noticing me. You can download XML Notepad 2.0 here… 🙂
