I'm a little late to the party, but Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 is alive and kicking with its public release, accompanied by a GoLive license!

We'd love to hear your feedback on the profiler as we've done a lot of polishing since Beta 1. Unfortunately, we do not support profiling on VPC, so I recommend downloading and installing the Visual Studio Team System 2008 - Team Suite Beta 2 image. If you'd like to see VPC profiling support, please let us know.

Of course, in Visual Studio 2008, there's much, much more than just improvements to the profiler. If you've got a few minutes, it's worth seeing what's new, in either video or white paper form.
