New Monad Build Available!

A new Monad build is up on betaplace. To get it, go to beta.microsoft.com, sign in (yes, you need a Passport account), then give the guest ID "mshPDC", and follow the directions for the Microsoft Command Shell preview.

You can also read the same information on Lee's blog and Arul's blog.

This is a pretty nice build of Monad. I use it every day and it's extremely stable. When you sign up for betaplace you can also join a non-public newsgroup which is monitored and responded to by everyone on the Monad team, as well as other betaplace users.

Tom's Hardware tea-leafed this release. The article says it was "released on schedule to a select group of invited developers". Don't worry, you're all invited!!

You do not need a Microsoft Identity to use this shell:
ditto NAnt.

And they are Free, Portable, and Open.
(look up those last 3 words, they're commonly used outside Redmond, and by citizens who aren't slaves to their coroporate masters (ignorantly and proudly, or otherwise).
