We are extremely happy to announce the release of Microsoft® Visual Studio® 11 Beta! This release also includes the next version of LightSwitch!

Please see the LightSwitch Team Blog and the LightSwitch Beta Resources page on the Developer Center for information on new features available in LightSwitch. We’ll be rolling out more in-depth content and training in the coming weeks so keep checking back. My personal favorite is the new OData support so you know I’ll be writing a lot about that in the next few days. ;-)

Read Jason Zander's blog for information on new capabilities in Visual Studio 11 and .NET Framework 4.5. Beta comes with a “Go Live” license which means you can now start using Visual Studio LightSwitch for production projects!

We also created a new forum for Beta. Please post questions and feedback in the LightSwitch in Visual Studio 11 Beta Forum.

Enjoy!
