Generics

Yesterday, Microsoft Research released a beta version of Gyro, which is their implementation of generics for Rotor.

I downloaded it this morning and played with it, and I must say, it's great! This is going to be the killer feature for .NET (once the commercial platform gets it). Unlike the platform that starts with a J, this is actually done right. The Java generics proposal that was floated for 1.4 and then withdrawn was an ugly (nay, disgusting) hack. Gyro is beautiful, I have no other word for it.

I can't wait for this to appear in the commercial platform!
