Through Andres Aguiar’s weblog I found out that WinFS will not be part of the Longhorn release, that is now targeted for 2006. Avalon and Indigo should be in it, but also available on Windows XP. Read more in this Microsoft Press Pass item.
Just like Andres I wonder what it means for ObjectSpaces and the Microsoft Business Framework (MBF). I guess we’ll have to wait even longer.
I’ll be sending Andrew Conrad an email tomorrow, asking him when his fourth installment of the posts on ObjectSpaces is to be expected. With this extra delay, a community drop would certainly ease the pain (a little).
