2.0 RTM Break Beta2 Apps?

P: n/a
Anyone know if someone is running a Beta2 app if it will break if they
install the RTM version of the 2.0 framework (Assuming the app doesn't
use depricated features)?

That's a difficult question to say. While the method signatures would
be the same, that doesn't mean the implementation details won't. I would
say for the most part, yes, it is going to work, but you really should
recompile and test the apps yourself.

Hope this helps.

Early adopters must be prepared for breakage but there's certainly nothing
wrong to try to find what's broken -- or about to bbreak -- when it may not
have made itself apparent yet. I just wonder who is going to find
themselves as the peer aggregator for supporters to contribute their
findings? Hey, did I just give away my next business plan? :-)

AFAIK the framework assembly versions differ, which means your app
build with beta2 references .net 2.0 assemblies which aren't there.

Well, 2.0 is out now.

Short answer:

Some apps still work. Some don't.
