||In mid-January 2002, Microsoft released the official v1.0 of ASP.NET and the .NET Framework (sounds like a band, or movie, no?). In any case, if you've yet to upgrade to this version, you can get the needed bits at www.asp.net.|
If you ever used ASP.NET Beta 1, you'll no doubt remember the vast number of changes between Beta 1 and Beta 2 (see this previous FAQ, for more information). Fortunately, there are only some very minor changes between Beta 2 and v1.0. In fact, your ASP.NET Web pages will mroe than likely run as-is. (If you are using code-behind pages you will need to recompile the DLLs; similarly, any components compiled with the Beta 2 compiler, while most likely syntactically correct, will need to be recompiled with a v1.0 compiler.)
However, there are some changes between Beta 2 and ASP.NET v1.0, mostly low-level ones that, as an ASP.NET Web page designer, you will not have to worry about. The list of changes, though, if you're interested, can be found at: http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/upgrade/default.aspx
