As noted in this post on the XNA team blog earlier today, the beta version of XNA Game Studio 3.0 is coming next week. The blog post contains a list of key new and changed features between the XNA Game Studio 3.0 CTP that was released back in May and the upcoming beta. Here is a summary of the features:
Xbox 360-specific features
XNA Framework and Visual Studio features
I'm looking forward to getting feedback on the XNA Game Studio 3.0 beta once it is available next week. I'm planning to post some more detailed information about some of the above features that I worked directly on for this beta, so stay tuned.
As always, bugs and feature suggestions for XNA Game Studio and the XNA Framework can be reported via the Microsoft Connect site. Our team takes these bug reports very seriously, so I definitely encourage you to report issues there.
