Software developers writing applications for Intel Itanium 2 based-systems received a boost today with the pre-release version of Microsoft .NET Framework for Itanium 2 microarchitecture. The .NET Framework expands upon an already robust set of tools available for Intel Itanium 2-based platforms running on 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows.

The broad portfolio of tools to create and optimize Windows, Web and .NET-connected applications for Itanium 2-based systems includes Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP 64-Bit Edition Version 2003 operating systems, Microsoft .NET Framework, Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003, Intel's IA-32 Execution Layer (IA-32 EL), Microsoft compiler tools and Intel's performance suite of compilers, analyzers and libraries.

Intel offers a suite of software development products designed to optimize performance of applications on Intel architectures. These products include the Intel C++ and Fortran Compilers, Intel VTune Performance Analyzer, Intel Math Kernel Library, Intel Thread Checker, and the Intel Performance Libraries.
