Project “Astoria” Went Offline

As I said at the end of the Project “Astoria” Went Offline
session I had this week,
the “Astoria" team is working 
on an offline feature for
ADO.NET Data Services.
Today I saw in Guy Burstein’s
that an alpha preview of the offline feature was
released as a stand alone preview.

What it’s all about?

“Astoria Offline” is an end-to-end solution for the building of offline
applications that use data from data services, either within an intranet
or across the internet. It’s based upon the collaboration of
ADO.NET Data Services, Entity Framework and the Microsoft Sync
. By using this feature you’ll be able to build the client and
server sides of the system, to create sync-capable databases or adjust
existing database schemas with sync capabilities. Using “Astoria Offline”
allows the consumers of the data service to synchronize against it,
while maintaining the decoupling a service provides, and while allowing
the service to enforce business rules before the data makes it into the

Where to get it?

You can download the alpha preview from here.
