  • Blog Post: State of VS 2010 Performance

    Up until Christmas, I was blogging almost every day about the progress we’ve made on addressing the Beta 2 feedback that VS 2010 had significant performance issues.  Since then, our efforts have hardly taken a break.  I saw active investigations all the way up to Christmas eve and then a bit...
  • Blog Post: VS 2010 & .NET 4 Public Release Candidate Planned

    I've written extensively in the last few weeks about the feedback we've gotten from our Beta 2. I hope you can tell we've heard your feedback, we are taking it very seriously and are committed to shipping a product that you love. I'm grateful for all of the feedback you've given. I'm also grateful to...
  • Blog Post: Update on Debugger Perf

    One of the things we got a lot of performance feedback on in Beta 2 was the debugger.  We’ve been working hard on it since Beta 2 and it’s looking much better.  There was no single thing that was a magic bullet that made everything go faster – but rather a whole lot of small things that together...
  • Blog Post: A last comment on editor/IntelliSense improvements

    I got some data on some of the changes the languages team has made from Scott Wiltamuth (PUM of the languages team). The first change is in the message dispatching priority that we do in keystroke processing.  As a user is typing code that involves statement completion UI, we have a choice to make...
  • Blog Post: Requests for access to VS 2010 post Beta 2 SLCTP builds

    Since I posted my offer to hook you up with one of the Super-Limited Community Technology Preview builds, I have received a number of requests. I'm happy to do it but I want to clarify one thing. A few people seem to have the assumption that the build will be more stable than Beta 2 and therefore a great...
  • Blog Post: Why do we require NDAs on our SLCTPs?

    Last night, I got the following question in email and it seemed like a good one and worth sharing the answer more broadly. I'm just a bit curious about why you have an NDA for your SLCTP's. The purpose of NDA's is to prevent people talking about all the new great stuff in upcoming releases. I would imagine...
  • Blog Post: Blend Feedback on SLCTP1

    About a week ago the Blend team upgraded to our SLCTP1 build (Super-Limited Community Technology Preview).  We’re starting to get some anecdotal feedback from them and we’re planning to do another survey this coming week that will include everyone who tried SLCTP1 (a couple of internal teams and...
  • Blog Post: “Real World” Apps

    Someone asked me the other day what we were using as our “Real World” apps so they could compare them to their own apps to understand how the testing we are doing will apply.  Here’s a high level overview that characterizes several of them.  There are others that I haven’t listed but this should...
  • Blog Post: Update on Solution Load Performance

    One of the areas we’ve gotten a lot of performance feedback from Beta 2 on is loading solutions. We’ve made a ton of progress addressing the causes of the slowness. Like on the virtual memory issue I talked about yesterday, we’ve picked a set of “real world apps” – some of the same ones and some different...
  • Blog Post: Status update on post Beta 2 performance work

    We continue to drive for improvements – trying to make contact with every person who reports issues (via my blog, Connect, Surveys, etc.).  We’re released on “Super-Limited Community Technology Preview” to individuals who have reported problems and are on the brink of releasing another. Every day...
  • Blog Post: Another Virtual Memory Tip

    In truth, this won’t apply to very many of you and it is with some trepidation that I share it.  The last thing in the world I want is for everyone to blindly follow it.  This, like in many things in software, involves trade-offs that you need to think hard about. VS 2010 includes more managed...
