SSCLI 2.0 has arrived
Only for CLR hardcore freaks, the SSCLI version 2.0 has been released to the web. SSCLI (codenamed Rotor) stands for Shared Source Common Language Infrastructure and is Microsoft's shared source implementation of the CLI (ECMA 335) and the C# compiler (ECMA 334). So, it contains the source of an entire working CLR implementation, a C# compiler and much more such as ilasm, ildasm, cordbg, nmake, build, etc. I'll blog about adventures in the SSCLI soon as I have quite some posts in RC stage in my offline to-be-blogged queue (which happens to fill faster than it's being emptied).
Anyway, download the SSCLI 2.0 over here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=8C09FD61-3F26-4555-AE17-3121B4F51D4D&displaylang=en. Notice this build only runs on Windows XP SP2 (although you can investigate the source files on other platforms as well). Check out the link to the 1.0 release as well for an older build (2002!) that runs on other platforms too.Del.icio.us
