Beta 1 RC ??? WTF ??

Posted Tue, May 24 2005 12:31 by bill


Avalon and Indigo Beta 1 RC is now available, but WTF is Beta 1 RC ??  I thought RC meant Release Candidate.  Beta comes from the greek, second letter of the alphabet :

 `Alpha Test' was the unit, module, or component test
phase; `Beta Test' was initial system test.


So how the hell do we get a Release Candidate being an early system test ? 

 I wonder if they meant RC 1 ?? 

Wooo hooo  RC 1, if that's what they meant, then way cool !!  But Beta 1, uhm, ... déjà vu ?

Yeah, just when we thought the versioning couldn't get any weirder!

I had some major problems when trying to install this on top of Visual C# Express Edition Beta 2 - The new project types for Avalon and Indigo do not appear when creating a new project, with no errors raised during the installation process.

Yes i just tried installing Avalon Beta 1 RC on top of VS 2005 C# Express and got no errors, but also no results. There is no way to make/open an Avalon project. The XAML can of course be viewed since it's just XML, but it can't compile.
