Visual Studio 2005 Release Candidate is now available for download from the MSDN subscriber download site. The build is compatible with the September CTP of SQL Server. Both of these builds will be handed out to PDC attendees in the keynote session later today.
You will note there is no number associated with this release (e.g. RC1, RC2). That's because this will be the final public release before RTM. Enjoy.
