The patterns & practices team is pleased to (finally) announce the availability of the February 2007 CTP of the Guidance Automation Extensions (GAX) and Guidance Automation Toolkit (GAT)! This is a minor maintenance release from the previous June 2006 CTP, incorporating a number of fixes including updates to work more smoothly with Windows Vista. The complete list of fixes and improvements is in the included release notes and also available to read here.

For more details on this release, please read the announcement on my blog. In particular, please note that you will need to uninstall any existing guidance packages and software factories before upgrading to the new release of GAX, and (if you haven't got the refresh releases yet) you will need to download updated MSIs for the Web Service Software Factory (December 2006 Refresh) and Mobile Client Software Factory (July 2006 refresh) that work with the new release. These are refreshed MSIs only - the factories themselves are unchanged from the original releases. The original Smart Client and Web Client Software Factory MSIs will work unchanged with the February 2007 CTP of GAT/GAX.

Enjoy!
