Compact Framework future

Dec 7, 2010 at 3:11 PM


will you support the compact framework 3,5 in the future? I'm asking because we use it for develop win ce applications for industrial purposes. I see that more and more projects change to win phone 7 what we can't use.

If so, will you add the publish / subscribe pattern for cf soon?


Kind regards

Hi svbirdy,

Yes we are definitely planning to support compact framework 3.5 also in the future. We also have other people using the appspace on compact framework that won't be able to use windows phone 7 because of its limitations, therefore this is an important feature for us.

Concerning publish/subscribe, this is actually already available for the compact framework (with the exception that you can't apply filters, which is because of the problem that CF doesn't support expression trees). I corrected the wiki page that still said this feature is not supported.
