Microsoft posted for download late last week new test builds of its Oslo software development kit (SDK) and its Live Framework tools.

The updated Oslo SDK test build is an update to the first Oslo SDK Community Technology Preview (CTP), which Microsoft issued in October. From the release notes, it looks like the January Oslo SDK build includes relatively minor updates around "test coverage, improving test quality, and resolving code defects."

The Oslo SDK includes the Microsoft M modeling language, documentation and samples of Oslo models written in M and the "Intellipad" tool for Oslo. Oslo is Microsoft's modeling platform.

Meanwhile, on the services side of the house, on January 30, Microsoft rolled out a new CTP of its Live Framework tools. The Live Framework Tools work with Visual Studio and are aimed at developers who want to build and upload Live-Mesh-enabled Web applications in the Live Desktop. The January CTP of the Live Framework tools is primarily a set of bug fixes.
