.NET Framework Source Code to be released

Microsoft announced today that it will be releasing the source code for the .NET Framework in the VS 2008 time frame later this year.  No, it’s not going open source — instead it will be covered by something called the Microsoft Reference License.  The intent is to allow us lowly developers a peek into the inner workings of the framework for debugging purposes.

VS 2008 will also provide an integrated debugging environment where missing bits of source code are downloaded automatically.
