New XSLT-based list view in WSS 4.0

Windows SharePoint Services 4.0 will ship with a new XSLT-based list view with the following improvements :

  • SharePoint Designer customization support
  • conditional formatting and
  • improved developer experience with XSLT standard-based language support. ūüėČ

CAML-based custom list views are still working but without the mentioned improvements. The following will not be upgraded to the next version of SharePoint :

  • A list view that uses custom Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML)
  • A list view that is not associated with a feature
  • A list view that is associated with a custom feature

By the way: Custom field types with CAML in its RendernPattern will also not be upgraded.

Webparts are using controls (.ascx)

The Webparts will use controls so you can use a visual editor when creating your Webparts.


The other Pre-Upgrade Checker rules are about large lists, the workflow actions file and new authorized types for workflow in web.config
