Test Driven Development - NUnit

NUnit Pocket Reference by Bill Hamilton, published by O'Reilly is a good overview and reference of test driven development and the usage of the NUnit tool for .Net software development.

Google Print has a section of this book for free and is a good place to start learning test driven development.

Microsoft removes XQuery from .Net framework 2.0

Microsoft has unfortunately decided to remove support for XQuery (XML Query) language from the .Net Framework 2.0. XQuery was planned to be in Microsoft's next version of the framework and was even somewhat implemented in previous beta versions.

Microsoft has also chosen to not implement XSLT 2.0 standard (4.0 working draft) in .Net framework 2.0.
