I got Property Center running on .net 3.5 tonight. Honestly, it wasn’t a lot of work. There were some minor conflicts with the internal timezone class that I use, and I had to enable asp.net 2.0 web server extension with the vs.net 2008 virtual pc image. Other than that, things compile without any major problems and the site comes up as I expected. It was interesting to note that as far as IIS is concerned, it still uses asp.net 2.0.
I’m really looking forward to doing some performance tweaking with linq and some of the 3.5 features. I’m guessing that the site will begin a slow transition away from nHibernate as I get more comfortable with linq and linq for _____. nHibernate has been great for me, but it has also made me lazy as far as performance tweaking. It’s not nHibernate’s fault, since it does support performance tweaks quite nicely. I’ll post my trials and tribulations as I work with the new version of the .net framework.
