Just Feeding While You Work

Did you ever want to just kick off the download of some videos, upload a few new ones and then go on editing the description of that new title you are working on while the heavy lifting is done in the background of your application?

Now you have a friend in the multithreaded business. With the latest release of the .NET SDK for the Google Data APIs, you can easily spawn background queries, updates and even batch operations without blocking your UI anymore. This is done by using the event-based asynchronous pattern that is also used in other .NET components, so you will feel right at home using this new feature set.

Here you can see the updated PhotoTool backing up two Picasa Albums while editing the metadata of another picture:

In addition, the release sports a number of other enhancements and bug fixes documented in the release notes.
