.NET Framework Library source code to be released, XNA not (yet)
Posted by XanTium | October 4 23:22 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From letskilldave.com (FYI: MS owned blog):


Scott Guthrie announced yesterday that Microsoft will be releasing the source code for the .NET Base CLass Libraries, Windows Forms, ADO.NET, XML, and WPF in the near future to enable easier debugging support. This is excellent news and will surely be a timesaver for many developers.

Now, before you ask: The XNA team has no current plans to release source code for the XNA Framework or other proprietary tools and runtimes. That doesn't mean it can't happen in the future (never say "Never" :)), but it's not on the table right now.

Good news is its about time, .net reflector did help but not enough, bad news is its a shared resource which means mono won't be implementing any code to help cross-platform. This only allows us to look at it not change it or redistribute it.

took the words right out of my mouth, open source is not good enough, we need free as in freedom!
