Dublin has been renamed Windows AppFabric

Dublin and Velocity have been renamed to Windows AppFabric and the Beta 1 version is available at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsserver/ee695849.aspx. The link also includes documentation, samples and virtual labs. I would have preferred the name Application Fabric, but for some reason that suggestion was not followed.

Here is a summary of Windows AppFabric (from Brian Loesgen’s blog http://www.brianloesgen.com/blog/2009/11/17/goodbye-dublin-hello-windows-appfabric.html ):

Windows Server AppFabric is a new set of capabilities, bringing together the functionality of Dublin, as well as Velocity (a high-performance, distributed, highly-scalable in-memory cache). In a related move, the Service Bus and Access Control Services that were formerly part of the .NET Services brand have also been rebranded and we now have we now have “Windows Azure platform AppFabric Service Bus” and “Windows Azure platform AppFabric Access Control services”
