Hey – I’m running around doing a few things before I disappear on vacation (hopefully I’ll get something to you tomorrow) – sorry forgive my brevity.
In the Live Framework we have the ability to represent our Infoset in many different formats fairly easily and PoCo seems to be gaining traction with the address book data type so we decided to implement it as a preview.
In terms of what we do/don’t have in place :: Nishant/Inder can correct me but what we have implemented is the wire format (not sure about the filtering/paging) and we are not compliant WRT to OAuth as we are dependent on Live ID DelAuth – though we are watching OAuth closely.
When will this hit the street? Not certain yet – it is a preview and therefore it could be removed before we ship (unsure when we’ll ship) but for now it’s in.
Lets chat more in the new year.
Sorry for jumping in late but I am still on vacation.
Yes, the support for now is limited to wire format. We do not support the paging and filtering constructs as of now. Try it and let us know if you find any issues with at least the wire format.
Thanks for the update, Angus, and let's definitely all catch up after the holidays! js
