Browsing Whidbey assemblies

What's new in Windows Forms for Whidbey? What did they change for System.XML? How about the object infrastructure? There's a good amount of Whidbey related news out there (particularly in the MS blogs), but for another kind of view try the .Net2TheMax .NET Browser. It's a web site that allows you to wander through Whidbey Beta 1 assembly hierarchy and see what has changed or been added since 1.1. For example, take a look at this list of changes in the string class.
The UI is not perfect and you have to have an idea of the internal structure of .net (for example, most of the interesting stuff in System namespace lies in the mscorlib instead of the more logically named assembly called System), but a little bit of exploring will certainly give you an idea on what's new – and it'll also give you good keywords for Googling for further information. Happy hunting!
