The march edition of MSDN magazine is live, containing my article about the IIS7 web server in Windows Vista. The article is an overview of the many features and architectural changes in IIS7, that hopefully will point people towards the specific things that they may want to learn more about and try.
It's all about the IIS7 in Windows Vista, so that means you can start using all of those features today. Some things covered:
- Componentized web server architecture
- The new C++ and .NET extensibility models
- The diagnostics and runtime monitoring features
- The new configuration and management APIs
- New security features
You can read the article at http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/07/03/IIS7/default.aspx.
Writing it was a bit of a challenge because of there being so much to talk about, and only so little space / time. So, I hope you will find the right balance of depth and breadth.
Like I mention in the article, I am open to requests for more coverage on any topics of interest from the overview that I can cover on the blog. So, looking forward to your comments …
