      The Microsoft® .NET Micro Framework is a platform that enables developers to more quickly develop embedded systems that are smart, securely connected, and easier to manage. With the version 4.0 release, the .NET Micro Framework enables developers to create powerful embedded systems that are more securely connected through a variety of wired and wireless protocols. The 4.0 release is also the first release under the Apache 2.0 license. With this Porting Kit you will be able to create, modify, and build Micro Framework firmware images that are customized to your needs. Using the Solution Wizard, you can select the right set of features, libraries, and memory settings to provide the optimal image size for your needs. You can then write new drivers, leverage native code routines through interop, and deploy them on your device hardware. To get started, please read the introductory material in the Porting Kit documentation. The documentation contains a lot of useful information on the Micro Framework architecture, build system, driver model, libraries, and how you these are used to create a new firmware image for your hardware. In addition, we are extending our very successful newsgroups to include groups specific to porting as well as the SDK so that you can exchange information with other engaged in the same process. You can find links to these newsgroups and other useful information at http://microsoft.com/netmf.
