An interesting project that I’ve previously written about is the LINQ to XSD project. It’s not a LINQ Provider but it is a tool for generating code to work with XML files in a type safe manner (which will give you the power of LINQ to Objects with the type safe data objects).
Last time I wrote about the LINQ to XSD tool, I had received an answer to an e-mail query to the team. They said that they were looking at “ways to further the LINQ to XSD technology for its user community.” Now, they have done just that. The LINQ to XSD project can now be found on Codeplex. Now the community (that’s us!) can further the LINQ to XSD technology for ourselves. My thanks to the team at Microsoft for this!
