I’m pleased to announce that we have released our April CTP release of the Live Framwork SDK and Tools in preparation for MIX09 next week.  For full details see the official announcement on the Live Framework blog, but here are the highlights:

  1. You can now run the local client for side by side with the local client for
  2. Support for Windows 7 and IE8
  3. Single install for the Live Framework SDK and VS Tools – no more chasing down multiple bits and pieces to install in the right order!
  4. Continuing on that “chasing down bits” theme, auto update introduced in the January CTP release will bring this new release to you.  If you enabled auto update in the January CTP release, it should notify you now (in the next 24 hours or so) that the April CTP is available and give you a link to click on to get the update.

I say, this whole thing is beginning to feel downright civilized.  Wouldn’t you agree?
