What's Next for .NET

Looks like we'll see an update to .NET this year. I was hoping this was going to be a .NET 3.6 release, but no such luck. Instead, it'll be .NET 3.5 SP1. With all the changes going into the release, it seems like more of a point release, but whatever. With all the version shennanigans .NET has been going thru over the last three years, it would only confuse people more, so it's probably a good thing. WPF seems to be getting the most updates. I have to wonder whether Silverlight 2 is pushing those changes. I'm also not sure whether this will be art of the VS Rosario release. I don't think it will unless Rosario comes out sooner than expected. If they are separate, this will be the first VS release that doesn't come with a new version of .NET in over a decade.
