Caveats About My Silverlight 2 Data Services Article

As some of you may have seen, my new article in MSDN Magazine (and online) was recently published. Because we’re in a bit of a no-mans-land with builds, the current article only works with .NET 3.5 SP1 Betaand Silverlight 2 Beta 2. This means if you’re like most of the world and updated to the full release of .NET 3.5 SP1, some of the code in that article is not going to work for you. I hope to have a new drop of the code (and maybe the article too) once Silverlight 2 ships and is fully compatible with ADO.NET Data Services/Entity Framework that are in the full version of .NET 3.5 SP1.  See my other article talking about the incompatibilities here:

My apologies to anyone who spent too much time trying to get the code in the article working. Such is the problem with beta software and hopefully we’ll have a solution sooner rather than later.
