Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview 6 Announced Today

imageToday marked the launch of PDC 2010, a two-day Professional Developers Conference held at Microsoft’s corporate headquarters in Redmond, Washington.

At PDC 2010, Dean Hachamovitch, general manager for the Internet Explorer team announced availability of the sixth platform preview for Internet Explorer 9.

In September, Microsoft released a beta version of Internet Explorer 9, and today’s platform preview builds on the underlying platform that powers Internet Explorer 9.

New in this release are CSS3 2D Transforms, HTML5 Semantic Elements, and improvements to the overall developer experience.

Today’s release is targeted at developers and is not an update of Internet Explorer 9 for end-users. Microsoft has said that the next public Internet Explorer 9 release will be the release candidate but have not given a release date.
