    Does the current version support Visual Studio 10 / .NET 4.0 ?

    What about the the parallel support in .NET Framework ?

    Thanks,

    Bill

    We don't have a firm timeframe for the next release, but I would expect sometime this summer.  Infer.NET remains a research project for now, I'm afraid - there are no plans to offer a 'Go Live' license in the immediate future.

    The current version should work fine in VS2010/.NET 4.0, with the exceptions stated below, although as these are relatively new we have not done extensive testing. The example projects supplied with Infer.NET are for VS2005/2008 so would need to be converted to work in VS2010 (this should happen automatically when you open them). 

    The limitations are:

    • The current (experimental) implementation of parallel support was designed to work with the CTP and will not work with the .NET 4.0 parallel libraries.  We will fix this in the next release.
    • We also have reports that the current F# wrapper is not compatable with F#2.0 - this will not prevent you from using Infer.NET from F# 2.0 but will make it less convenient to do certain operations.  Again, we will look to fix this in the next release.

    Please let us know if you do encounter any other difficulties using either VS2010 or .NET4.0 and we will do our best to resolve them.

    Best regards,

    Can you give any timeframe on the release date ? Also, any idea as to whether this project will ever have a "Go Live" license so we can use it in a production offering?

    Thanks,

    Bill
