Where can I find a list of changes made to "old" blocks (if at all) in EL3.0?

Thank you,

For starters, I would look in the docs folder.

There is a document called

Release Notes - Enterprise Library 31.0 CTP.htm

It talks about a few of the changes. I am sure that as new CTP's come out this document will be updated as well as the final documentation will have a list of changes as well as any migration strategies.

The included release notes should provide an accurate (if brief) description of the changes in this CTP. For the December CTP, the only significant changes we made to existing blocks were in the Data Access Application Block - namely support for SQLCE and a new overload for UpdateDataset.

We aren't planning on a lot of changes to existing blocks in the final v3 release, and the changes that we do make should be additive to the v2 functionality. Most of the new features will be in the Data and Logging blocks; it's not likely we'll make any significant changes to the other blocks.
