Microsoft has released a new version of the .NET Alerts SDK. .NET Alerts is a messaging and routing service that can be customized to the target customer preferences - hardware: PDA, Cell, Desktop, etc with messages: IM, EMails, etc. I have been evaluating the SQL2K File Notification Services for my server and will explore how the .NET Alerts complements it.

I'm hoping that SBC's will post his analysis. .NET Alerts is one of those technologies that can have lots and lots of very cool applications. It also represents yet another integration point between the OS and Groove. Current releases of Groove include its own notification technology. Replacing it with .NET Alerts could do wonders for further opening up Groove Platform to developers.
