ASP.NET Cross Page Postback to Different Applications Now Implemented

Paul raised some concerns ( about the inability to use the new ASP.NET Whidbey cross page postback functionality to pages that live on other servers and other applications.  The good news is that it will work in the beta thanks to Ting's checkin yesterday.

Below is his checkin mail from yesterday:

            • Cool. I'm sure there are many many ASP.NET developers that will be happy, at least judging on the basis of the number that I see looking for a solution. :)

            • Hi Scott, you forgot to remove the links to your bug tracker, and hey it's still running on asp?

            • This is excellent news, Scott. Thanks to everyone for being so responsive (and to Paul for pointing out this important issue)!

            • Whiw, I am amazed- Scott, you are posting change logs in your weblog? Change log right from the dev team?

              GREAT. You guys are taking openness futer and further- gratulations. I remember sitting in a round table discussion with Steve Ballmer earlie this year in Berlin talking about open source development, and how transparent and fast responsive these (as well as the smaller companies are), and it really rocks to see how MS opens up.

              Besides, naturally, that this is agreat step forward in handling one of the very limiting issues with application posting.

            • Definitely a welcome step - this will probably allow us to fully migrate to .Net, rather than have an ugly ASP.Net/ASP hybrid.

              Now when can we have decent support for CSS layout in the .Net Studio (ducks for cover)
