I was on a flight yesterday, and couldn’t tweet or post this until after I landed.  you can download the Release Candidate of Visual Studio 2010 now. 

I’ve been running it since last week. It’s been stable, and seems snappy enough.  Hopefully, I can give some of the extensibility features a try.

By the way, the Windows Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio 1.1 was actually out before the RC.  Go figure.  Nice blog post by Jim Nakashima about it.

Soma posted some info to his blog, under the post “Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 Release Candidate now available”. There’s also some deeper info on Jason Zander's blog.

Hope everyone enjoys this!
