SSCLI 2.0 Internals

Joel's weblog appears to be down, so in response to some emails I've posted my draft copy of SSCLI 2.0 Internals here. I think it's the same PDF that Joel had on his weblog, but I haven't made absolutely certain of the fact. :-/

If you've not checked out the first version of SSCLI Internals, it's cool—the second edition is basically everything that the first edition is, plus a new chapter on Generics (and how they changed the internals of the CLR to reflect generics all the way through the system), so you're good. And if you're not sure where to get the codebase for Rotor 2.0 (the SSCLI), well, here, I'll make it easy for you. ;-)

Gotta say, this is almost without question my favorite book to have written. Just wish Microsoft would've kept Rotor up with the successive CLR releases (3.5 SP 1 and now the forthcoming 4.0). Maybe, if I can find that wishing ring....
