Microsoft Releases source code for Asp.Net 2.0 providers

I don't believe I've seen you here before. You may want to subscribe to my feed to keep informed of new posts at DynamicVB.NetRSS feed. Thanks for stopping by!

Scott Guthrie has posted the Microsoft has released the Asp.Net 2.0 providers as source code. These include the Membership, Role Management, Site Navigation, Session State, Profile, Web Events, and Web Part Personalization providers. There has also been quite a few pages of documentation that have been developed and I look forward to reading through the documentation and finally understanding how these providers function. You can read about the release of this source code over at Scott’s blog.

The source is released under a permissive license that allows you to modify the source and release it with your applications. I’m wondering what implications this will have for applications such as CS or DotNetNuke which both use the membership providers that was back ported for Asp.Net 1.1. This could provide some advantages with both these applications as the provider can now modified to meet their individual needs and should allow both these projects to deliver a more robust membership provider that benefits the customers of these applications.
