On Friday, March 16th, we released an updated CTP version of the new DotNetNuke Services Framework. This is truly exciting!
For developers who are experienced with the DotNetNuke APIs, they may not care much. On the other hand, if they're wanting to expose module services externally in a standardized way, then the Service Framework and coming Service Layer API's will be a major boon. Indeed, we're taking that approach with some of our own modules in DotNetNuke v6.2, examples being messaging, the new journal, and notifications.
