Even More News from the PDC: First Look at the Next Version of CardSpace

CardSpace IconI’m excited that the first beta of the next version of CardSpace – Windows CardSpace “Geneva” – is now available. You can download the bits for this and the other “Geneva” betas at the “Geneva” Connect site. The team posted a detailed introductory piece about the new version on the team blog, so I won’t repeat that here.

This version of CardSpace is a rewrite on a new code base designed to be much smaller, faster, and easier to use. While it’s an early build and far from feature-complete, we nonetheless wanted to get it out now so you can see the directions we’re headed and give us feedback early in the development cycle. This build runs on Windows Vista (32 and 64 bit), Windows Server 2008, and Windows 7.

We’ll be writing more about the key features of CardSpace “Geneva” soon, and as well as the rest of the “Geneva” family that enables claims-aware applications, so watch this space and the team blog. It’s great to now be able to show and discuss the work the team has been doing. I’m looking forward to the ensuing conversation…
