I just used my bookmark to the Application Development Forum but it appears to be gone.
I see no link to it in the first page of this forum either. I guess it was taken down.
OK. I see that forum was moved and re-named aptly enough to Server-Side Applications.
There's not an easy way to get there from the beginning of the DW forum. I had to click around a lot before I found it. I'm worried that less people will participate on that forum--I have a question pending. I wish they would make a more direct path to the developer forum like before!
