In case you've missed it, there's a been a raft of BizTalk vNext announcements recently. In my last post
I referred to BizTalk 2006 R3. Well, turns out R3 is dead. Long live BizTalk Server 2009
The BizTalk team have now published a very clear Roadmap
which talks about where we were
, where we are
and where we are going
. I was particularly interested to note this in the BizTalk Server and "Oslo" and .NET
"In response to customer feedback, we are committed to continued support for BizTalk Server’s XLANG orchestration technology - the existing BizTalk orchestration engine. Additional support for WF will be prioritized for the coming releases based upon customer demand and scenarios".
has a good post: BizTalk Server 2009
in which he says we're still on track for a first half of Calendar Year 2009 for the BTS 2009 release.
He also linked to a PressPass interview with Oliver Sharp who's the general manager of BizTalk Server: Q&A: What’s Next for BizTalk Server
