Key notes

  • Microsoft today announced the release of Fluid Framework 2.0 in beta.
  • The latest version supports a new data modeling feature, among other things.
  • Fluid Framework is already being used in a variety of Microsoft and third-party apps.

Microsoft today announced the release of Fluid Framework 2.0 in beta, a new version of its open-source platform for building real-time collaborative experiences. 

The new version includes several key enhancements, including a new data modeling feature called SharedTree, support for the newly announced SharePoint Embedded service, and improvements to the overall performance and scalability of the framework.

The open-source platform, which was open-sourced by the Redmond tech giant back in 2020, allows you to develop real-time collabs between Office apps on the web.

Now, Fluid Framework is already being used in a variety of Microsoft and third-party applications, like Whiteboard and the built-on-Fluid Framework Loop apps.

“Developers can use Fluid Framework 2.0 to add collaboration to new or existing apps. It offers a schematized data model, so developers can continue to use their existing data model and quickly make their apps collaborative,” Microsoft says.

Teams over at Redmond also promises its general availability this summer after months of beta testing from now onwards.
