If you’re a software developer, you know that when your product is in beta, tough decisions have to be made. You always want to make your product better and fix all of the bugs found by your customers, but there just isn’t always time for that. However, since your app is in beta, you can’t just go and make sweeping changes to your code that would potentially destabilize it – it does need to ship some day, you know.
It appears as if the WinForms team is in the same situation. The most notable features which got the cut (for me, anyway) was the ability to host Office documents in a Form, and the simplified printing API. Apparently, the implementation of the Office document hosting just wasn’t as far a long as they’d like it to be, with some pretty big changes that need to be made. It sucks, but we’ll deal with it. Hopefully it’ll be there in the next release.
