Actually the Chinese team had nothing to do with this release.
The thanks go to Corentin Zill (CSA Engineering / Mountaineer Group), Justin Wilson, John Brochue (GHI Electronics), Jan Kučera and in particular James Scott (Microsoft Research Cambridge) for their concerted effort!
But it looks like the Chinese team is gathering speed and, according to the new NETMF program manager’s boss, who attended [em]Embedded World[/em] in Nürnberg, support for Visual Studio 2013 is next on the agenda.
Interesting, why is this happening behind the scenes?
Sorry, don’t understand what you mean by “behind the scenes” ?
I completely aware of the layers stuff… BUT looking at the Gadgeteer developer and coordinator list on codeplex, I dont see the people that Cuno mentions. So something is going on somewhere out of my sight. Where is that?
