There is no estimated date for CTP3. Given the wish list you can find at
http://cslagenfork.codeplex.com/releases/view/54532 it could take a long time.
There are two ways of doing a project like CGF:
1) close the CTP cycle and make final releases in very small incremental steps
2) keep long CTP cycles and publish source code changesets that have "final release" quality
Approach 2) involves less work as I don't have to build a setup every time I publish source code changes. For the casual visitor, approach 1) is more interesting as he doesn't have to build the source in order to see how the product "state of the art" looks
like. So far I've followed approach 2).
The feature on the drawing board is Silverlight and asynchronous code generation. This is a major change and maybe I have to close a CTP just for this feature as it involves a diferent set of templates and a lot of other changes. This means another lot of
features won't go into CTP 3 but rather into CTP 4...
Back to the point, my question is: what is the feature scheduled for CTP 3 that you are waiting for?
