Since the release of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4 Beta 2 back in October, the DevDivision (the group responsible for Visual Studio and all related products) has receive a lot of feedback about the product. Based on the feedback, the teams have been been busy working on reported issues and working to ensure the highest quality is in the 2010 release. So on Friday, December 18, we announced that we’re going to extend the beta period by adding another interim release, a release candidate with a broad “Go Live” license.
For more information, check out these blog posts by Soma, Scott, and Brian.
