Microsoft pushes .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 via Windows Update
As of January 2009 patch tuesday (27th), Microsoft finally started pushing the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 via Windows Update.
The package itsef has been around for some time but had to be deployed manually to end user machines/servers. It’s good to see that Microsoft is now automatically deploying it via Windows Update to every supported platform (Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Home Server) so that developers can make use of it without having to deploy it along with their applications.
So for new releases of my addins, the system requirements will read “Windows Home Server with all high-priority updates installed”.
