Microsoft Pre-Release Software Visual Studio Tools For Office "V3" - June Community Technology Preview (CTP)

The June 2006 Community Technology Preview of Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Office "V3" is now available.

The primary goal of this CTP is to showcases several new important investments in the area of Office programmability. New XML-based file formats, a revolutionized and highly extensible Office user interface, and support for managed add-ins in Office applications not previously covered by Visual Studio Tools for Office provide an unprecedented number of new opportunities and challenges for Office solution developers. Visual Studio Tools for Office provides an easy to use, reliable, and secure solution development environment and infrastructure to help developers exploit these opportunities and challenges and take their solutions to the next level.
