Normally available only to subscribers, three CD images comprising the April 2003 MSDN Library have been posted by Microsoft for public download. The MSDN Library contains documentation, code samples, technical articles and reference guides designed for Microsoft developers.
The posting follows last week's release of the final version of Visual Studio .NET 2003 to MSDN subscribers. Formerly code-named Everett, Visual Studio .NET 2003 includes the .NET Framework version 1.1, which adds improved performance and scalability. For mobile developers, the Visual Studio update now supports the .NET Compact Framework and includes integrated ASP.NET Web forms.
Visual Studio .NET 2003 will officially launch on April 24 alongside the long-awaited Windows Server 2003. Microsoft plans to push both products in order to promote development on its .NET platform. Developers without MSDN access can view example code and documentation before the product's launch by downloading the MSDN Library
