Bart de Smet has released a very usefully query expression translation cheat sheet this is an excellent resource if you’re into Linq and want to be able to write a Linq expression in code.
I don’t remember this happening yesterday, but once I’ve started browsing with IE8 today I quickly discovered that I wasn’t able to open links in a new tab or window. Selecting open in new tab from the right-click context menu when clicking on a link caused a new tab to open with the title ‘Connecting…’, in the right tab color (tab grouping feature), but there was no address in the URL bar and the page never loaded while the open Link in New Window wasn’t doing anything at all.
What’s more I noticed that Windows Explorer (not IE) was always opening new folders in new windows even though I’ve had specifically set it to open new folders in the same explorer window.
Arghhh…. after running a few tests, running the browser in no add-on mode, and disabling features one by one I’ve discovered that both problems go away by turning IE8 quick tabs off.
Bug submitted here. Please rate it so that it gets fixed.
I’ve been following IE beta program since it’s first public release (beta 1) so when I’ve read a few minutes ago that IE8 beta 2 has been released for public testing I’ve download it and installed it. Installation completed without any problems and IE8 was up and running in a few minutes.
Some of IE cool new features that you’ll find in this release are:
What’s more is that it’s pretty fast too…
I finally managed to find an hour to update my blog engine to the latest release of Subtext (Subtext 2.0).
Migration was smooth and had no trouble at all running the new engine in a matter of minutes. For detailed instruction on the migration steps, this is probably all you’ll need.
Of course my old skin does not work with the new engine so I’ve decided to use one of the pre-built ones till I get something mine on ;-).
Let me know, if you notice any problems. Keep on blogin …
